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.

Simple walk down to Lake Anza, ok for kids but a little slippery underfoot. Ok for dogs too.

Amazing views at the top! Nice short but steep hike. Will definitely do again

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.

This route is very heavily trafficked and paved. All Trails says that it is dog friendly however none of the trails that connect to Nimitz Way allows dogs and Dogs must be kept on leash on Nimitz way.

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

What a great hike! I covered so much ground and went through so many different types of forest, which opened up to various views of the surrounding terrain. I like how the track loops through both the upper and lower sections of Huckleberry, which provided a nice change of scenery on the way back.

I took a couple detours. I walked up the paved path to the water tank in Sibley to look out at the extinct volcano. In Redwood Regional, I headed south to the Prince / Stream intersection to see if the lady bugs were still active. There were a few stragglers, but the thousands that were there in January had moved on. I also walked down to the Grizzly Peak Blvd Overlook close to the end and sat on the graffiti-covered tree to soak in the stunning views of the bay. All in all, I racked up a little over 16 miles. Not bad for a Sunday morning.

Love this whole area you can get to from the farm. Awesome views on the east side/up on the hills, with amazing foliage and presence of lots of animals :)

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!

Not straight forward trail and hours of being lost

Beautiful views on clear days!!

This was a nice afternoon hike, with enough of an incline to get your heart rate up. The path mostly shady with a clear nice view from the top. A little slippery in places from the rain last week.

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.
