We hiked along the Nimitz Way from Inspiration Point, Tilden Park today. The hike was an out and back walk along a paved walkway took us along the ridges from Tilden Regional Park into Wildcat Canyon Regional Park for a total of 8 miles out and back. The weather was windy and rainy with an interesting ambience.
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.
Good trail (or road in some places) with good views.
I started from Inspiration Point, following the Nimitz Way, Laurel Canyon Road, Meadow Canyon trail, Curran Trail and finally back to where I started. This loop also toke me to the Tilden Nature Area and the Visitor Center.
Paved trail for the first mile or two then there are some trails you can take to get off pavement. Lost of bikers on the weekend. Parking can get tough also on the weekends.
Fun ride and apart from the crazy moggel downhill easy ride
