Nimitz Way Professional Review and Guide
"On this hike, each new twist in the trail brings on new—and jaw-dropping— views of the San Pablo Reservoir, the East Bay, and the grassy East Bay hillsides. Go on a clear day, when Wildcat Peak calls out to be climbed. The hike rests within the Charles Lee Tilden Regional Park, one of three original East Bay Regional Park District parks opened to the public in 1936. It was named after Major Charles Lee Tilden, a park founder and the first president of the park district’s board of directors."
