Accessibility: Not wheelchair accessible
Description: Easy to moderately challenging, depending on your speed and the trails selected. This time of year Tilden's meadows are filled with flowers. Our trails either cross the face of the ridge (easy 2.9mi.) or climb and follow the ridge (moderate, 3.6mi.). They are all wide, somewhat uneven dirt roads which gently undulate through meadows, pines, and firs.
Where to meet: We will meet in the parking lot for the Quarry Picnic site, 780 Wildcat Canyon Road, on the south side of Wildcat Canyon Road, just west of Inspiration Point. There is an accessible toilet there.
What to bring: Good hiking shoes or boots for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, snacks. Hiking poles are optional, but always a good idea for the longer option.
How to get there:
Drive to the East Bay Botanic Garden where Shasta Road and South Park Drive meet Wildcat Canyon Road in Tilden Park. Continue east (right) on Wildcat Canyon Road for about 1.25 miles to the Quarry Picnic site.
It should take about 20 minutes to get there from Hwy 80 at University Ave. in
