This hike is on a very nice portion of the Bay Area Ridge Trail which starts at the Tilden Park Steam Trains parking lot, going to Redwood regional park, and returning. The hike covers EBMUD lands, and goes through several East Bay regional parks, including Tilden, Sibley, Huckleberry, and Redwood Regional Parks. The terrain and scenery actually varies quite a bit, from open, dry hillsides, to fern and moss covered grottos. Some portions are completely in the open, offering great views, while others are under extremely dense tree cover. You actually walk over the Caldecott tunnel on this hike. Portions of the trail are in such dense greenery, you literally walk in tunnels through the brush.

One I'd forgotten I'd done when I lived nearby.

Dry and hot at 830 am. Did alittle over half the trail out and back due to time constraints. The last 2 miles coming back is mostly uphill but relatively shaded. I'll wait until it cools down though to do this trail again. Didn't see anyone until the last mile. Loved being out there solo.
