BART to Wildcat Canyon

Anyone know the best way to get to Wildcat Canyon from a BART station? I tried to follow a 511 bicycle route (safest) and it got me lost in the woods. I got to see a fantastic view of the Bay and saw a bunch of woodland critters, but I really wanted to do Wildcat.

Thanks

Which BART station?

From Berkeley easiest way is to take Center, to Oxford, to Hearst, to Euclid to Grizzly Peak, to Cragmont Ave, and right on to Wild Cat Canyon.

From the Orinda station, just head north on San Pablo Dam Road for a few miles, and then turn left onto Wildcat. You can also do the Three Bears loop from that station, or go the other way through Moraga and up Pinehurst.

Agreed that Orinda might be easier, but if you want to start from Berkeley, going from Hearst to Spruce and staying on Spruce until it ends at a 5-way intersection takes you straight to the beginning of Wildcat.

I should have said the closest one.

Thanks for the responses.

Closest is Orinda. By a number of miles. Follow bigbossman's directions. It's about 2 or 3 flat niles to the bottom of Wildcat Canyon. Turn left at the treaffic light at the edge of town. It will be obvious.
