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.

From Highway 24, take the CAMINO PABLO exit towards JFK UNIV/ORINDA VILLAGE/RICHMOND. Head north on Camino Pablo for approximately 3 miles. At the intersection where Camino Pablo turns into San Pablo Dam Road, turn LEFT onto Wildcat Canyon Road. Inspiration Point will be on your RIGHT side.
