Nice, pretty, easily accessible trail. Great weather when I went, so there were lots of dogs, hikers and mtn bikers were on the trail.

Very nice trail! First of all, I love the fact that it’s dog friendly. My puppy loved it, especially he got to play with some other doggies on the hike too. The trail has diverse views, forest, creek, meadow, and valley view. Most of the trail is well shaded, definitely a great hike on a warm day. Would definitely come back to the park and explore more trails.

Great views. The trail is a bit rough at some points. Easy to slip on large loose rocks

Loved walking through the forest and how it was a solid 3 miles.

Definitely a good amount of exercise on the way up but it was well rewarded with beautiful views at the numerous pit stops. I highly recommend giving this trail a try. be sure to pack plenty of water.

Nice varied views and not too heavily trafficked, apart from near the parking lot. We extended the hike by adding a loop around Lake Anza, which we definitely recommend.

You can extend this hike by walking around Lake Anza.

We started from inspiration point and hiked all the way to vollmer peak via seaview trail.. about 3 miles one way.. We reached around 9 am there were lot of vacant spaces In the parking lot.. There is also a restroom near the parking lot at inspiration point.. Amazing views of San Pablo reservoir , Golden Gate Bridge and the city.. Nice elevation and great workout.

Gorgeous forested hike in Tilden Park. This hike was characterized as “moderate.” I agree. Some steep spots and some rough terrain, but totally doable. #TrailsChallenge2018

If you go clockwise, your climb will be a bit steep to the top, however the descent will be more gradual and pleasant, so if you have knee issues I would suggest to go clockwise. If you prefer a steady ascent but a steeper descent then counterclockwise is recommended.

Several spots with storm damage, lots of dogs and more heavily trafficked than we prefer. Still a decent outing but not something I’d put on my repeat list.

Amazing views!

Beautiful lake. Great picnic spot. Some rough patches.

Stunning views

Great views if the bay area on a clear day.

We saw 4 river otters in the lake today! Thought they were ducks at first, but googled it and found out that river otters in Lake Anza are really a thing! Super awesome surprise!

Beautiful views on clear days!!

Great even on a cloudy day

Came across 4 friendly dogs looking to be petted.

This is one of the best views in all of the Bay area. 360 degree view, from down to the peninsula out to the Golden gate and Bay side, Mount Tam and Marin and over to the delta into the valley East Bay towards Mt. Diablo and beyond. On a clear day you can see forever in all directions. The walk I do is from Inspiration point in Wildcat to Vollmer Peak and takes a minimum of 3 hours.

Rocky, very steep in parts. Great views!

Awesome trail run, a little rocky, moderately challenging, but absolutely beautiful views on a clear-skied morning. It is perfect for a sunrise hike. We saw a couple deer and only one other person on the trail so early in the morning. Not very shaded if you go on a hot day, but the eucalyptus trees Are plentiful along the trail.

Beautiful views and lots of shade. A bit rocky, just be careful. Uphills are spread throughout with good amount of flats and downhills.

So gorgeous! Get ready for a lot of hills with loose rocks.

Great trail, easy to moderate hiking. If you go after a rain the trail can be slippery/muddy so be prepared. Good mix of covered and sun hiking.
