Overview

Mezue Trail is a bit steep and hot during the daytime. Then, you traverse a bit on Nimitz Way Trail. Finally, head down to the Havey Canyon Trail. It is short, but perfect for before or after work. Watch out for trail runners and hikers. Also, there are a few gates on Havey Canyon Trail. Enjoy!

Description

This loop is not very technical and it's conveniently located for those who live in North East Bay.

Start with a quick descent on Rifle Range Road Trail which is a partially paved, steep half mile trail that will take you to the bottom of the Wild Cat Canyon Park. It is shaded and wide like a fire road. Nothing exciting in terms of features, but it will give you a good exercise. At the bottom, hang a left onto Meadows Canyon Trail.

Shortly afterward, hang the second right onto Mezue Trail, which is steep and exposed, but it is a good workout trail for those who can't drive too far or have no time during the weekday.

Havey Canyon Trail may be the only fun part of this loop, but the view from the top of Nimitz Way Trail is rewarding! The trail is almost completely under the cover of trees except for the bit right at the top. There are a total of three gates that you'll pass through and a creek crossing. The trail is mostly hardpack. The upper portion is usually covered with leaves and there are a few spots that hold water and will remain wet/muddy.

Uphill climb was steep, but hard packed dirt so it wasn't technical. Nice view at the top & fun downhill. Uphill ride out to end the loop. 5.2mi

Harvey loop trail is a little beaten up from the rains and cattle hoof prints on the trail. But the trail is mostly dry.
