Enjoy the trails at this preserve with a "Lucky Seven" hike ("Seven Switchbacks") with Docent Naturalists Nancy Weintraub, Nick Yatsko and Rae Collins. This moderately-paced exercise-focused hike will traverse through riparian, oak woodlands, and chaparral habitats on the scenic Wildcat Canyon Loop Trail. Will there be water in the creek? Come find out. (Note: Bring a snack. This activity is for individuals who are comfortable climbing 850-feet with "long distance hiking" at 2.5 miles per hour.)
Meet near the restroom at the bottom of the hill in the preserve parking lot farthest to the right. From I-280, take Foothill Boulevard south and turn right almost immediately onto Cristo Rey Drive. Continue about 1 mile, veer right around the traffic circle, and turn left into the park. After entering the preserve, turn right and drive approximately 0.3 miles to Lot 6.
