Event Notes:

Tilden: Seaview - Selby Loop

A moderate 7.8 mile, 1500 ft. hike of EBRPD Tilden Regional Park. This hike has great views, some wildflowers(YMMV), lots of restrooms, and a Steam Train! (Whistle)

Starting from Inspiration Point along Curran and Seaview Trails around Vollmer Peak past the Steam Trains, where we may stop for a snack break. Then down Vollmer Peak Loop Trail and Youth Camp Road to Gillespie Youth Camp for another potty break. We continue on Tower, Golf Course, Redwood, and Selby Trails to Lake Anza, where you guessed it another W.C. stop.

Finally we complete the hike on Lake Anza, Wildcat Gorge, and Curran Trails.

Leader: Joel Schantz

Trail Notes:

Meet at the bathroom/out house at the start of the Nimitz Way trail. We will hike for a bit on Nimitz, then cut down to the dirt trails down the hill on Conlon Trail to Wildcat Creek then return back to Inspiration Point by way of Meadows Canyon Trail. Total distance round trip estimated to be 8 miles! Terrain is level on Nimitz Way, but there are some steep downhill parts on Conlon and a steady uphill for the last couple of miles on Meadows back up to Inspiration Point.

Trailhead Directions:

From Highway 24, take the CAMINO PABLO exit towards JFK UNIV/ORINDA VILLAGE/RICHMOND. Head north on Camino Pablo for approximately 3 miles. At the intersection where Camino Pablo turns into San Pablo Dam Road, turn LEFT onto Wildcat Canyon Road. Inspiration Point will be on your RIGHT side.

Parking Fee: no charge
