Hiking at Wildcat! 6 miles starting at Wildcat Staging Parking Lot

Note: when I opened the map, it went to the middle of the park. So here is a link to the park site and their directions. You can view the trail map as well. Continue with directions to get to Wildcat Staging, off Park ave and into the parking lot.

It's been awhile since I've hiked at Wildcat, and this is where I took my first hike with the group before Amber adopted me. We'll be doing a common 6-mile loop starting on the uphill side, and very beginning and last 2 miles will require leash.

Be weather prepared!

Hike rating: Moderate

Hiking pace: Moderate

We will wait 10 minutes after the posted start for latecomers.

Efforts will be made to keep the group together.  if you are unable to keep up with the group pace, the organizer will not be on the lookout for you. It is recommended that you obtain a map at the beginning of the hike in case the group is separated.

5.​California Civil Code section 1542 states; “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” I specifically waive the terms of that section, and agree to Release claims that I may not yet know of, or which may be based on events that have not yet occurred.
