Tilden and Wildcat Canyon Mountain Bike Trail Map

Discover the best East Bay mountain bike trails at Tilden Open Space and the adjacent Wildcat Canyon

Tilden Open Space Mountain Biking

East Bay riders hankering for some nearby after-work riding should look no further than Tilden Regional Park and the adjacent Wildcat Canyon. Tilden and Wildcat provide Berkeley-area riders with easy-to-access rides in a beautiful setting. Beginners will also like these two contiguous parks filled with easy to moderate terrain. Wildcat even features a paved ridgetop bike path with gorgeous views.

Typical East Bay terrain presides, with oak-studded hillsides and cool, shady canyons dominating the landscape. Tilden and Wildcat often benefit from bay breezes (and sometimes fog), making them good alternatives to the usually oven-like summer temps at Briones and Mt. Diablo.

Tilden is a developed park with a golf course, swimming lake, playgrounds etc., so enjoy the trails but please be respectful of the often large numbers of other users.
