WILDCATS!  HERE IS A HIKE for those wanting a strenuous workout without lots of miles.  This hike will use Las Trampas and EBMUD trails that allow for swift & significant elevation incline/declines over short miles. Rocky Ridge has one of the best vistas of the Bay Area. Weather forecast calls for a spectacularly clear & sunny day!  During our lunch break on Rocky Ridge we will likely see all the way to the Farallon Islands!
