We have enjoyed Tilden Park as a family for decades. Great hiking , great views and a place to be one with East Bay nature. Most places dog friendly.

Always an enjoyable time at Tilden Nature Park. No matter your age or fitness level, there is something to enjoy at TIlden. Lake Anza provides cool swimming and a nice beach. Hiking trails have great views of the bay.
