Seaview and Big Springs Trails Loop offers a view at the top that is almost unbeatable in the East Bay Area.

The trail is dog and horse friendly, and many trail loops make Tilden Regional Park fun for families and those of any skill level. The Seaview and Big Springs Trail loop is typically used by avid hikers, trail runners, or mountain bikers. The first half of the trail is exposed to the sun and rocky. Wildflowers are abundant in the spring.

Overall rating: 

Great View

The first half of the loop is fully exposed and a little steep, so bring plenty of water and sun protection. I did this hike in late March and there were already tons of wildflowers! Very dog friendly.
