Soar over San Francisco Bay at Tilden Regional Park

It’s simple to go on an inspiring hike through Tilden Regional Park in the E Bay hills.

Whether you start from Lake Anza and work your way up to the hilltops or get the high road on the Seaview Trail, the park delivers a wealthy menu of pleasures: bay views (weather permitting), creeks, oaks, eucalyptus, grasslands, soaring turkey vultures, dogs thrilled to be outdoors, excellent Northern CA landscapes all in all.

The Lone Oak area is a excellent sampler. Start up the Meadows Canyon Trace from the parking lot off Central Park Drive, and the vistas and shade-dappled paths obtain going right away. The trace gently climbs an exposed hillside toward Wildcat Canyon Road, until it’s just sky straight ahead and the landscapes of Berkeley and, beyond that, Mount Tamalpais over your shoulder.

Before reaching the roadway, slice right (south) onto Curran Trace and head back down to the forest until you hear the creek that runs alongside Wildcat Gorge Trail. Chase that back to the trailhead for a lush finish to the 2.83-mile walk.

From Sacramento, get Interstate eighty west, and in Albany, exit Buchanan Street, which turns into Marin Avenue. Close the top of the hill, turn left on Grizzly Peak Boulevard, right on Sunset Lane, left on Wildcat Canyon Road, and after a mi or so, right on Rule Drive. Create a right on Central Park Drive and a left on the first road that curves to the left. The Lone Oak parking lot awaits.
