The hiking trail close to home here in Sacramento is my "gym". It's only about 3 miles long, and the hills - altho steep - are only 100 to 120'. With repeating parts of some sections and hills, I had worked up to 8 miles and 900' of climbing, 3 times/week.

Then the rain and the cold weather started. Same thing happened last year, and disrupts my hiking for 3 months. Looking for where I might be able to hike during the winter months where the weather would be more pleasant. I know the answer will probably be somewhere outside the U.S. Any suggestions?
