Beautiful treasure just above the UC Berkeley campus. I wish I had had more time to explore the area. We saw deer and other wildlife. The place has spectacular sunsets, too.

Tilden Park is a gem in the East Bay. There are miles of hiking trails with views of the bay. Most trails are great for mountain bikes as well. There are a number of trails where dogs can be off leash and all the dogs and dog owners I've encountered are happy and friendly. My favorite trail begins at the... More

Tilden Park is an incredible resource in the East Bay of San Francisco. It's as grand and glorious a park as you'll find anywhere, and rivals Olmsted's creations in the majesty of its landscapes, and how it fits into the urban surroundings. With lakes, the Wildcat Creek drainage, and redwood groves, the park also includes a substantial lake (Lake Anza),... More

I have used Tilden park for many years. First as a place to take my (4-10) year old daughter on week-ends and some week days after school. The steam trains Small trains driven by train loving adults. The trains wind through a small gauge railway system, through forested areas, through small tunnels, up and down rolling hills. A ride lasts... More

Tilden is part of a chain of public parks that run along to hills behind Berkeley and Oakland. All have wonderful hiking trails and some of them have views of the bay. What Tilden has is facilities, a fresh water lake for swimming, small train, carousel and so forth. There are several roads that enter the park but you need... More

Met a fellow bed&breakfast guest who would drive up to Tilden to go for a run, and was kind enough to take me with him. It was fantastic to run down the 4mile trail with views on both sides, green hills, lakes below, the smell or redwood and eucalyptus, and the peace and quiet… Absolutely loved it!

If you are in the East Bay and want a break from the populated areas and have a couple hours, consider a hike in Tilden. Easiest access is by car but buses (AC Transit) do run up along Grizzly Peak. If you hike the skyline trail, on a clear day you can see the entire Bay Area and beyond. Well... More

I first went to Tilden Park several years ago for a wedding, and thought it was beautiful. Visiting again in December let me explore a lot of areas I didn't see before. It's huge, so there's a lot to see. We walked around, saw lots of runners and bikers, solo couples and families alike. If you have some free time... More
