We completed a nearly identical 7 mile loop from the main staging area for this preserve - Alvarado Area in Richmond. The loop comprised of Wildcat Creek Trail -> Havey Canyon Trail -> Nimitz Way -> San Pablo Ridge Trail -> Belgum Trail -> Wildcat Creek Trail. A moderately difficult hike with 1200 feet elev gain.

Bring water, and avoid going on a really hot day! For much of the hike, you're exposed to the sun on top of the hills with no shade. If you pick the right day - it's perfect. Go clockwise and start with the difficult part, leaving the mostly flat and shady area for last!

A nice trail that I did with 4 friends. It goes in and out of trees and mostly wide open spaces with some pretty good views. Most of the trail is old roads with a small mix of single track connectors. We were there at the wrong time watching a couple of bulls going at each other until one decided to chase us..... Fortunately there are some huge power lines there and we were close and jumped up on the cement supports and got out of harms way.
