Tilden Park is a new stop on our trip list for this year. The park offers a great variety of birding opportunities including lakes, grasslands and pine forests. We will bird the Inspiration Point area looking for warblers, nuthatches, woodpeckers and many more. It's easy to spend a whole day in this park, but we should finish in 3 to 4 hours. Be prepared for a moderate hike.
Meet at the free parking lot at Inspiration Point (restrooms available). From Highway 24 at Orinda Crossroads, take the Orinda-Moraga exit. Go east on Camino Pablo 2 miles to Wildcat Canyon Rd. Drive 2.5 miles up the hill to Inspiration Point. You can also Google your favorite way in, but check for road closures.
