Wildcat Canyon

Simon's pick of the week (thank you, Simon!):

Hike rating: Easy

Hiking pace: Moderate

We will leave promptly at 9am.

Efforts will be made to keep the group together.

This is a 7 mile (or 9 if we do the Conlon Trail)
Belgum Trail > San Pablo Ridge Trail > Nimitz Way > Havey Canyon (Or the longer loop around Conlon Trail) > back on Wildcat Canyon Pkwy.
The initial 2 miles is uphill, but after that it's flat/down hill for the most part.
There's at least one river stop where Havey, Conlon and Wildcat Canyon Pkwy meet the dogs can splash around in.

    Great hike. I got there a few minutes late and wasn't able to catch up but me and my three pups did the 7miles. It was quite a challenge for me but beautiful despite the drizzle. Jazzy especially liked the creek. And she rekindled her love of cowpies.
