Steam Train and Sky View Trail at Tilden Park

Yesterday we had a great time at the Steam Train at Tilden Park.  A 5-ride ticket on the steam train is $12 (single-ride tickets are $3).  Each ride is about 15 minutes long.  The tracks wind through the redwoods in the park, and you can catch glimpses of the Bay in the distance.

Pictures of the nearby Golden Gate Miniature Railroad.  A club maintains the railroad, which is open to the public on Sundays (we went on a Monday holiday and so the GGMRy was closed).

Pictures in the roundhouse:

We then walked up part of the Sea View Trail, which is a fire-trail that you can find right by the upper parking lot for the train area.  Here are some of the views from the trail.  First, facing West:

The trail passes by several telecom towers:
