Dry: Trail/fire road is in great condition. Watch out for the cows that might be snoozing on the path :) Great ride from Nimitz. History

A fun, downhill ride with some of the best views in the area.

Overview

Description

This trail is a connector between Nimitz Way Trail, at the top of the ridge, and Wildcat Creek Trail, at the bottom of the canyon. From Nimitz Way Trail, it starts as a wide gravel road up a short steep pitch to a viewpoint looking east towards Mt. Diablo. The road swings to the northwest and, before reaching a cattle gate, look for the viewpoint bench on the hill to the left. This is one of the best panoramas of the San Francisco Bay.

Past the gate, the road isn't regularly graded and rides more like a singletrack. Unfortunately, it's a cattle grazing area and the trail gets trampled and beat-up especially after wet weather. The trail follows an open ridge-top with views to the west and north. After a final hill climb, it's all downhill to the bottom of the canyon. The last half-mile past the power lines is winding and steep so watch your speed as there's another cattle gate at the Wildcat Creek Trail junction.
