My weekly hike. Suffice it to say that I middle-named my dog Tilden just so we could memorialize this haven that keeps on giving us peace and adventure

Altho situated on the eastern periphery of East Bay cities (e.g., Berkeley, El Cerrito, Oakland, etc.), its proximity rates it as an urban park (formally, Regional Park) Wonderful environment, including one of the world's best carousels (summer), swimming lake, horse riding, miniature steam railroads, small but great animal farm, numerous picnic areas/tables and grills, and innumerable hiking paths; many scenic...

This place is dear to my heart! I lived in Berkeley for ~ 8 years and would regularly hike the Sky View trail. You can meander for hours and not get bored. The air smells nice, the views are amazing. I highly recommend it for short and long excursions.

Beautiful park with lots to do: hiking, Little Farm, Merry-go-round, steam train, picnic and swim at Lake Anza. If you go to Little Farm you can feed the cows, sheep & goat but remember to pick up some celery and lettuce (only permitted feed) at the store before you go b/c you can't buy any there.

They still do and they are teenagers. There's a Little Farm with animals you can feed, I'm a local teacher and I've brought all elementary grades I've... More

Be sure to check out the steam train and carousel if you have young kids (or young at heart :)! Lots of amazing vistas throughout so take time to explore.

This park is very close to Berkeley and during weekends can be very crowded. But that aside try the trail from Inspiration point or visit the little Farm and the trail that goes around Jewell Lake.

Driving around and heading into the Tilden Regional Park(TRP) was really cool. Great views and lots of trails to hike on. Bring a picnic lunch and just enjoy being outdoors. There is a neat little golf course tucked in up here that I'm sure is a blast to play. When the fog rolls in it offers some spectacular photo opportunities.... More
