Cragmont Literary Lanes

Saturday, September 7, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Leader: Bob Johnson
Start: Intersection of Grizzly Peak and Keeler

Join Bob Johnson, co-author of Berkeley Walks, for a jaunt through the Cragmont neighborhood in the north Berkeley Hills. Cragmont is characterized by modest cottages and larger homes, great views of the Bay and beyond, curvy roadways, and numerous paths and streets named for poets and authors of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Ina Coolbrith, Brett Harte, and Robert Louis Stevenson. “Cragmont” refers to the large craggy rock outcrops in the area, some of which have been made into small parks. This 2-mile walk includes 4 paths and some uphill, but mainly follows the contours of the hills.
