Event Notes:

A 2014 Trails Challenge hike estimated at 7+ miles with 1200+ foot elevation gain. From the Trails Challenge Guidebook: Wildcat Creek Trail begins east of the parking lot along a wide, paved fire road. Travel for 2.32 miles, then make a left on Havey Canyon Trail and head east into the forested area. Continue for 1.5 miles: you come out into an open field and head north and uphill. Make a left on Nimitz Way. After 0.68 miles follow signs for San Pablo Ridge Trail. Enjoy the sweeping views. Turn left on the Belgum Trail. Take this trail all the way back to Wildcat Creek Trail, and make a right to return to the parking lot. We will take a short rest/snack stop at the old Nike missile site near the junction of Nimitz Way and San Pablo Ridge Trail. Water and restrooms near the parking lot. Dogs welcome, off-leash OK on the trails.
