great view!!!

We only hiked up the Panoramic Hill (probably less than 2 miles up and down). Beautiful scenery of the Bay. Moderate traffic with lots of dogs and families. Good for children too if they are up for the uphill challenge, especially the last climb up the Panoramic Hill. The view was rewarding!!

The total hike was 7.5 miles. Sometimes covered with tree, sometimes not.Though we climbed more than 1000 feet, but as it was not a continuous uphill path, we didn’t face too much difficulties. It was great for exercise. The trail was not at all crowded. Very few people were hiking with us. Even sometimes we three were alone on the path. It was an enjoyable hike...

I loved it.

Moderate hike on a pretty straight-forward trail. If you stay on the trail you will end up to the Math building and from there you can return back to the parking lot. Great view of the Bay and UC Berkeley buildings.

Very simple walk up a fire road. There are some off road portions but not many. Good for casual walks.

There is an AC Transit bus close to the end of the hike that will take you right back to downtown Berkeley if you don't want to walk back down. The bus is the 65.

Great climb with shade and sun. Wide trail. Not too jammed with people but in the middle of lots of UC Berkeley Science buildings - sometimes you only want to see trees but still great route in Tilden.

steep hike but views great with both sun and shade.

Hike was great. Beautiful day and thankfully not hot. One short hill was very steep as noted in other posts but otherwise a great hike. Looking forward to when there is a little more water in the stream.

The trail was overall okay. it had one uphill section towards the beginning that was the most difficult, then it was fairly easy from there on out. you maybe get 2 pockets of good views of the uc campus and of the bay. there are better east bay trails out there though.
