WinterFest at the Tilden Park Steam Trains are decked out with holiday decorations.
Trains will be running from 11am-7pm. That's right, night trains!!! They will be taking place December 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd. Tickets will be the same prices as always.
Remember to dress warm for the evening trains since the East Bay Hills do get cold. Also, recommend bringing a flashlight to help you get from your vehicle to the main gate, though during the ride please keep flashlights off for everyone's viewing pleasure.
The railroad is located at the south end of Tilden Park, at the intersection of Grizzly Peak Blvd and Lomas Cantadas Rd.
