All of the pathways have been photographed over the years. We are fortunate to have a set of path photos taken by our vice president, Colleen Neff, who has walked each of the many paths. Please see our page on path photos. Also, there is now a path video on YouTube.
The are approximately 140 paths owned
by the City of Berkeley, most of them
in good condition with minimal difficulties
for the walker. We have compiled a full
of paths giving the top and bottom
street for each. We also have six locator maps which show all of the paths in Berkeley.
A number of pathways
are, at this time, unimproved, and
are shown on the BPWA map as dotted
lines. There are two listings of the
unbuilt paths -- the first of these is
ordered by the addresses
of streets where unimproved paths
begin and end. This is useful if you
want to find paths that lead from a particular
street. The other has a list of paths
with street addresses that is arranged
by the name of the path. This help
you to find a particular unimproved path.
A major goal of BPWA is to
improve paths which have not yet been
built. Please see the special section
Building and the date of our Next
We have a collection of handouts
and background information from
some of our earlier walks that
may be useful in planning one's
own walk. Please see our section
Also, please take a look at the Path
stories that have been collected
over the years.
