Park Hills and Hill Road

Park Hills and Hill Road
Sunday, March 4 @ 1 to 4:00 pm
Leaders: Bob Johnson and Janet Byron
Start: Northwest corner of Grizzly Peak Blvd and Marin Avenue.
This outing features one of the new walks from the recently updated and revised second edition of Bob’s and Janet’s Berkeley Walks. They will lead us through one of the last subdivisions built in the Berkeley Hills, which the sons of Frederick Law Olmsted laid out. Highlights of the walk include grand views, several lesser-known paths, a Tilden trail with diverse native plants, and distinctive homes. Most of this almost four-mile walk will be on quiet streets without sidewalks. The route includes some gentle ups and downs and a few short, steep sections. The total elevation gain will be 760 feet. Street parking is available, but be sure to check the signs.
