Take Wildcat Canyon Creek Trail to Laurel Canyon Road up to Nimitz Trail. This trail as defined is NOT in its totality 'dog friendly' the trail crosses 'Tilden Nature Area' where dogs are not allowed. A small modification and you skip that nature area and can bring your pup.

I started at the Alvarado Park parking lot, hiked up to the Wildcat Creek Trail, turned left onto the Havey Canyon Trail, continued up to the San Pablo Ridge Trail, Bel Gum Trail and completed the loop at the Wildcat Creek Trail where I started. Total distance was 6.7 miles with elevation of 1,125 feet. There was quite muddy at the Havey Canyon Trail but I had a good workout.
