Richmond to Walnut Creek
I backpacked this a few years ago starting in Richmond from Wild Cat. Camped a night at Sibley and then em walked out to Walnut Creek BART station. I grew up on these trails but have hiked and trail run all over the world and this is As good as urban backpacking gets. Great views long periods of isolation if done weekday. Looking forward to coming home and running this as a 50k I think it easily could be done in under 7 hours. Backpacking about 2.5x that. It’s a must!
