Take a 5-mile steeplechase through upscale neighborhoods in the Oakland / Berkeley hills with even more stairs and hidden paths than our San Francisco stairway hikes. We will meet at the east end of Broadway at the corner of Rockridge Blvd. (near Hwy. 24) at 10 AM. We should be back to our cars by 1:30 and out from lunch by 3:00.
Bring warm and cool weather clothing, hat, camera, drinks and snacks and sturdy walking shoes. Except for shops on nearby College Ave., there are no places for food, drink or facilities. If lucky, we may find unlocked construction porta-potties along the route. We will plan to meet at a local restaurant after the hike (optional) for lunch etc.
Since we will go through mainly residential areas, I have to limit size to 17 maximum, so contact Hoyt Nelson at email@example.com soon to signup or for more info. This hike was last run in October of 2006, so it will be new to most of you.
