Great trails

Love the trails up here, remember going here with my father as a child. Cool attractions like a carousel and miniature train station make this a great place for families to visit.

Tilden Park is a jewel in the Berkeley hills where families and nature lovers can easily spend a full day exploring and enjoying the offerings. Families must visit the LIttle Farm, the Carousel and the Steam Trains; kids can feed pigs and goats, ride on a vintage carousel animal and chug through the redwoods on a small scale, open-air train....

Tilden Park has something for everyone. A historic merry-go-round and a little farm for the children, a Nature Center, many picnic areas, a field for ball games, and Lake Anza for swimming.

My husband and I took our 20 month old granddaughter to the Children's farm. She loved the animals and could run from one area to the other. There were many parents, grandparents and children there, but lots of space. Also, there is a small playground best the parking lot. I highly recommend this.

We weren't worried as we knew we were headed in the right direction (generally speaking that is). We hiked shortly after a rain storm so we did encounter quite a bit of... More
