      The trails of Tilden and Wildcat are best known for their views, as opposed to optimum riding. Located in the hills above densely populated urban areas, these trails see heavy use from cyclists, joggers, dog walkers, and hikers. In parts of the area, you'll also encounter cows, peacefully grazing the hillsides.

      Most of the trails are fire roads, wide and rocky. From the hilltops you'll get amazing views of the San Francisco Bay Area on one side and you'll see nice vistas to the east as well.
