“Several Tilden Nature Area trails can be stitched together into one ideal loop with great views and local history!”— Scot Hacker
Back in the day, the Rotary Club set up a grove of redwood trees in Wildcat Canyon, each marked with a plaque honoring a leader in world peace. Then, at the highest point of the hills, they created a circle of stones where hikers could go to rest their bones and take in the incredible views of San Pablo Dam to the east and the entire Bay Area to the west.
Eat your corn chips and drink your kombucha, then on the way back down, go right on Peak Trail rather than left (i.e. don't return the way you came). Stay on the Wildcat Peak Trail as it descends plenty of switchbacks through eucalyptus and sage to eventually reach a junction with Sylvan Trail, which will ultimately lead you back to Loop Road and your vehicle.
