Called on to puppysit, I had to mix it up with some offset to the lazy, eating, drinking weekend that was otherwise pretty perfect!

Having done Cowles before I opted to explore some more of Mission Trails. I prefer the singletrack over the old roads.

The Shepherd and North Fortuna were nicest. The Fortuna Saddle area is meh, and the South Fortuna trail is great, but super steep. Climbing it would be solid! I had considered a loop with Father Junipero Serra but when I realized it's just a 2.5 mile paved road walk, I wisely voted against it. (It was a nice drive on my way out of the park! Much better that way!)

I'd like to do the climbers loop sometime for quick elevation gain and to check out some of the routes up there. It kept drawing my eye as it could be seen from many other spots on my hike. It's only a mile and I'd considered doing it after my big loop but the sun had burned off the clouds and the humidity was now turning into a hot I didn't want to deal with away from the beach! So I called it a day.
