We return to the Wildcat Creek Trail. No bathrooms or water but plenty of parking. Directions: From 80, take the San Pablo or Barrett exit and head west towards the water on Barrett. Barrett ends at Garrard. Make a right on Garrard. The road curves and goes under 580. Pass Hensley and Gertrude to your right. Garrard becomes Richmond Parkway. On the other side of the road you'll see a junkyard, then the park's entrance, which does not have a big sign. The next turning lane is at Pittsburg Ave. Make a U turn on Richmond Parkway when you hit Pittsburg Ave, so that you can turn right at the nondescript park entrance. Park at the small parking lot. You can also take the Richmond Parkway exit and make a right at the park's entrance after passing Giant Road, the dump, Parr and Pittsburg Aves (in that order).
