Hiking in Tilden Park around Jewel Lake is beautiful and easy walk. It's about 2+ miles and well worth it. The Little Farm is a short distance from Jewel Lake and especially fun for children.

This is a mountainous aea. There is a fantastic botanical garden. There are areas for different types of plants. Plants are generally well marked. Niice walking paths.

to have such a treasure within an urban area is wonderful. Within minutes you are out of traffic and away from the rush of living.

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.
