Tilden Park is beautiful, and there are many great hikes in the park. Inspriation Point trail has an asphalt path and both bicycles and walkers can use it. The views are fantastic.

Little farm is the best! Bring celery and lettuce to feed the goats. A great way to make you smile, no matter what your age. Went with my 22 year old daughter to walk down memory lane of her childhood visits - we loved it.

An easy, scenic hike with beautiful views at the top. We did this with our son and daughter-in-law who are in their early 30's and we're in our sixties - worked out well!

We attended a wedding in the Brazilian Room in Tilden Park. Admittedly, you drive up a lot of crazy, winding roads to get there--but once we arrived, it was absolutely gorgeous--and perfect for a totally memorable event. The grounds are fabulous--wonderful plantings, spectacular views.
