To master these hills, you're going to have to master your equipment. Before you hit the trail, make sure you have what it takes. You're going to need plenty of water and a doggy bowl so your dog can share it. Though there is water on the route, it's not safe for consumption. Sturdy boots, sunscreen, and a hat to keep off the glare wouldn't hurt either!
You're going to gain a lot of elevation starting with the Moodridge Trail. A major stop along the way is a "teepee" that's set up as a permanent shade structure. Rest here if you need a break! You'll walk along the crest for two miles before dipping down into Wildwood Canyon. At the deepest point you'll ford the creek (easily a dry crossing in summer, but never very deep) and start slowly climbing again.
Lynnmere Trail will take you from the creek's river bank and down in a wide loop along the south side of Wildwood Regional Park. You should keep your eyes peeled for signs for the Indian Creek Loop. This is the longest part of the hike, but isn't the most difficult climb; Moonridge Trail holds that honor! Once you spot the turn off to Indian Creek Trail you're almost there!
A mile or so on Indian Creek Loop will bring you back to the parking lot. You'll have gotten a great view of a lot of Wildwood Canyon, and the area beyond!
Hike Moonridge Trail, Lynnmere Trail, Indian Creek Loop for a woofderful time!
