Walk the Rock Parks of Berkeley
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 walk is featured in Berkeley Walks, co-authored by hike leader Bob Johnson and Janet Byron.

Heavy rain cancels.
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.
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.
