Pine laden, hilly trails along a stream in a wooded canyon. A couple excellent views of the Bay. Take Selby trail to Wildcat Gorge trail. Run along a stream (water flows even in the summer, which is unusual in the Bay Area) on pine needle and Eucalyptus leave laden trails. Take Mineral Springs trail, then left on Seaview trail. Left on Curran, left on Wildcat, right on Lake Anza and Left on Selby trail to return to your starting point. Park maps are available at most trail heads. Dogs allowed on leash in developed areas/under voice command in undeveloped areas of the park; no dogs permitted in Tilden Nature Area

Nice mix of open and wooded, narrow and wider trails. The trail when near Lake Anza can be noisy due to all the swimmers so they section won't give you an 'escape to nature' feeling.
