We hiked along Nimitz Way from Inspiration Point, Tilden. This was an out and back hike/walk along a paved walkway took us along the ridges from Tilden Regional Park into Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. The weather was cool, cloudy and sometimes windy. This trail was perfect for this condition. The hike was 8.3 miles and we had a great time.

This is not a hard trail, it is however longer and beautiful. The spring is gorgeous up here, get out when the grass is green.

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.
