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.
