If you want astounding 4 bridge views this is the place. Sometimes crowded in the beginning but if you go out to where pavement ends you can see a canyon with coyotes laying in wait for calves of the grazing cattle or even dogs if you are not cautious and allow them to be enticed into the chase. Try it and like it.

Beautiful trail up to the lake. A few nice flat stretches for running. Went a day or two after a big rain so some very muddy patches. Recommended for an easy quick run!

This was one of those hikes that you can see a glimpse of on the commute through the tunnel. It gets up high and you can see everywhere. I did it solo in early winter so the weather and the views were great. I wouldn't want to do it in the summer. Most of the hike is exposed and would be very hot with all the hills. When I did it I saw no one anywhere..... I don't think I'd want to do it again...cardio challenge.

Great loop. Hilly at times but overall a nice moderate hike! Will do again and next time I'll bring the dogs!

Very easy all levels walk around small lake. There is also a supervised swimming area and fishing is allowed.

great views of the bay

Moderate trail. Best in the early morning since there's not much plentiful shade on this loop.

Good trail (or road in some places) with good views.

Came early on a Saturday morning, standing on top of the cloud, absolutely amazing views! A small part of the trail is strenuous, without the app I will for sure get lost.

Killer views though a little foggy and overcast early in the am. Moderate inclines but totally worth it. Not too many people for a Sunday morning, which is a plus

The Jewel Lake Trail is peace and quiet, and it is good for walking and wildlife spotting. We started at the Tilden Environmental Education Center. We hiked around the Jewel Lake Trail and saw a blue heron in the Jewel Lake. We continued hike up to the Wildcat Peak and enjoyed the view of the entire bay and surrounding cities.

Really challenged me. I injured my knee recently and was not sure if I could hike the whole trail, however I was surprised that I did. Good workout and my dogs slept all the way home

After the lake not much to look at. Also half of it is not shaded, so plan for that on very hot days. I would recommend a different hike in this park.

I went thru the Seaview Trail connecting from Vollmer Trail. Nice short trail in Tilden Park. Some nice tree grove areas & views of the Bay.
