Joaquin Miller Park: A Literary and History Tour


Joaquin Miller Park: A Literary and History Tour
Saturday, March 24 @10:30 a.m.
Leader: Linda Brown
Start: Ranger Station inside park entrance (across the parking lot from the Community Center)
Linda Brown, past president of the Berkeley Branch of the California Writers' Club, will share the history and literary heritage of this lovely 500-acre, heavily wooded park. The three-mile walk will proceed at an easy pace and include breaks for commentary at each of five monuments that honor Joaquin Miller, California’s “Poet of the Sierras.” The route includes the 2,000-seat Art Woodminster amphitheater and Cascade, which are dedicated to California Writers. Most of the route is on fairly flat terrain, often on old roads, although Woodminster does have 225 steps. Consider taking your own hike into the interior of this lovely park after Linda's walk.
