“Uses trails less traveled in Wildcat Canyon.”— Wendy Wheeler
Head over to Havey Canyon Trail, which is my favorite trail in Wildcat Canyon Park! The trail winds up the hill along the creek, and has a diverse range of plants and trees. It is a peaceful, cool place on a hot day, and you'll never want to leave. We saw a hornets nest attached to the bridge on the way up to the ridge.
When we reached Nimitz Way Trail, the wind was blowing hard and the rolling, grassy hills provided no protection from the wind. We quickly took in the views of the San Pablo Reservoir, Mt. Diablo and Contra Costa. This was the first time I've done the Conlon Trail going downhill, and was stunned by the San Francisco Bay views. Make sure to stop at the bench mid-way down the trail on the left hand side for the best views of San Francisco. The wind died down as we descended into the canyon. Turn right on Wildcat Creek Trail and head back to the parking lot.
Non-Native Spanish Broom and Monkey Flowers.
Hawks, Rabbit, Sparrows and other small birds.
