Eastern colors: For views of subtle fall foliage in the East Bay

A great hike

Eastern colors: For views of subtle fall foliage in the East Bay, check out the Lake Anza area in Tilden Regional Park on an easy 1.5-mile loop hike. Pass under live oak and redwoods before scrambling over rocks on the lake’s eastern shore. Go through a grove of eucalyptus trees and head up the Wildcat Gorge Trail to find most fall colors along Wildcat Creek. Loop back to the lake via Selby Trail.
