|Tilden Park hike with the dog: shaded trails were nice on a hot afternoon|
|Fantastic gnarled oak trees line the trail near the creek|
We hiked on the Wildcat Creek trail, taking an out and back along the pleasantly shaded creek. It is possible to construct a loop, but that involved a more strenuous hike. Senor puppy was tired from an ear infection so we kept the walk to a shorter distance.
|Sunny bit near our turnaround point (bonus: water fountain at the trailhead at this end)|
Tilden is off-leash legal, so puppy had fun bounding around, fetching his ball, and locating things to sniff in the woods.
Total: 2.5 miles, plus two swims for the dog. Much fun was had by all!
