Event Notes:

Ignore the Trail Notes. We will take the Nimitz trail to Laurel Canyon Road and descend to Jewel Lake. We continue on Wildcat Canyon to Little Farm. We take Loop Road to Meadows Canyon trail back to Inspiration Point. We can snack at Little Farm.


Trail Notes:

This is approximately 7 3/4 miles with some steepness so hiking poles or walking sticks are recommended if you use them. There is lots of shade, 2 lakes and a redwood grove with ferns and forget-me-nots, occasionally deer, a couple of hundred goats one time and often turtles sunbathing on lily pads. It is the perfect summer hike for those who missed getting to Costa Rica this year--just add a sloth and a couple of monkeys in the fern grove and Voila! Toilets at the parking lot and again at Lake Anza. Bring lots of water and some snacks or a light lunch. I LOVE THIS HIKE.

Please leave enough time so that you can slow down for the bikers also using this road. Meet in the parking lot at Inspiration Point in Tilden Regional Park.
