Description

Tilden Regional Park, located just outside San Francisco, offers riders in the Bay area a biking outlet. Tilden Regional Park encompasses over 200 acres of terrain and has a handful of trails open to biking ranging from beginner to intermediate in difficulty.

The most involved trail in Tilden Regional Park is the Meadows Canyon trail which summits Volmeer Peak, elevation 1909’. Meadows Canyon features a short and steep uphill and several long, though non-technical, climbs. Other trails in the complex tend to be a bit easier and more suitable for advancing novice riders.

The trails in Tilden Regional Park wind through a combination of coastal forest and grasslands. The Bay Area Ridge Trail cuts through Tilden Regional Park and the higher elevation trails in Tilden Regional Park have excellent views of the surrounding hillsides, the California coast and the Pacific Ocean.
