Berkeley Woods

Date: Saturday, December 7, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Leader:
Bob Johnson
Start and end: 580 Grizzly Peak Blvd, 3 houses south of where Euclid ends at Grizzly Peak. 65 bus stops at Euclid and Grizzly Peak, but buses run once per hour on Saturday; parking available on surrounding streets.

Bob Johnson, co-author of Berkeley Walks, leads this hilly, ~ 3-mile walk in the northeast corner of Berkeley. The walk, one of his new free series of Berkeley walks, includes land formerly occupied by plant nurseries, and it features tall trees, views to the east and west, a variety of 20th-century architecture, the former homes of famous people, and an historic seminary that is now a Muslim college. We will explore two little-known paths, and walk up and down the ridge. The streets generally do not have sidewalks but traffic is scant.
