Tilden Park in Berkeley, CA, has hundreds of miles of trails crisscrossing canyons and mountain tops, plus all kinds of great attractions: Lake Anza, where you can swim in the Summer, a Nature Area with Museum and petting zoo, a full-blown carrousel for kids, plus dozens of great pic-nic sites with barbecue grills that can be reserved... Fabulous. Highly recommended... More
