Trail Notes:

Meet at the bathroom/out house at the start of the Nimitz Way trail. We will hike for a bit on Nimitz, then cut down to the dirt trails down the hill on Conlon Trail to Wildcat Creek then return back to Inspiration Point by way of Meadows Canyon Trail. Total distance round trip estimated to be 8 miles! Terrain is level on Nimitz Way, but there are some steep downhill parts on Conlon and a steady uphill for the last couple of miles on Meadows back up to Inspiration Point.
