Rock Parks of Berkeley

Sunday, July 10, 2016
10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Free - Reservations Required
Indian Rock Path
Berkeley, Alameda County

Join us for a walk on Berkeley’s pedestrian paths and stairways to visit seven small parks centered on large volcanic outcroppings.

Along the way, we’ll view quintessential Berkeley neighborhoods with fine gardens and architecture (including homes designed by Julia Morgan). Our climb will reward us with great views of the Bay and beyond.

This is one of the many walks featured in Bob and Janet’s book, Berkeley Walks.

Outing Leaders:
Robert Johnson
Janet Byron
Total Distance:
This is a moderately strenuous walk of 4 to 5 miles with about 1,000 feet elevation gain
Weather Policy:

Heavy rain cancels

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).

Leaders Note:

Bring lunch, water, dress in layers, and wear good walking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. Our route has a significant uphill portion to Cragmont Park, and then is mostly downhill after lunch. If you have questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at (415) 543-6771 (ext 321).

  1. Hi, I would like to sign up myself and 2 friends for this coming Sunday. Is there any part that is flat that my husband can meet us, he has some heart issues and can’t walk a lot of steps. If not it will just be the 3 of us
