Event description
Join Greenbelt Alliance on an urban adventure to visit seven small parks centered on large volcanic outcrops.

About this event

Our route follows pedestrian paths and stairways through quintessential Berkeley neighborhoods featuring fine gardens and architecture (including homes designed by Julia Morgan). Along the way, we'll enjoy great views of the San Francisco Bay and beyond.

Leader

Bob Johnson

Total Distance

This is a moderately strenuous walk of 5 miles round trip with about 1,100 feet elevation gain.

Weather Policy

Heavy rain cancels.

Cost

Free, but reservations required.

Where to Meet

We'll assemble at the northeast corner of Solano Avenue and The Alameda in Berkeley, near the start of the Indian Rock Path (and near the tunnel at the end of upper Solano Avenue). Street parking is available, but check signs. This area is served by AC transit lines 7, 18, and 79 from downtown Berkeley and other locations.

Notes

Bring lunch, water, dress in layers, and wear good walking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. Most of our walking is on city sidewalks with an option to ascend some rock outcrops for views. If you have questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321.

This is an in-person outing so we're happy to see you on the sidewalk!

COVID-19 protocol: If you are fully vaccinated, feel free to come mask-free. If not, please plan to wear your mask for the duration of this outing.
