Whole Berkeley Walk Series: Part 4

Posted on Apr 13, 2014

Halkin Walk (#31) is now OPEN! The new handrails have been installed on the upper section of Halkin Walk (connecting Hilldale and Euclid Avenues in the North Berkeley hills). On today’s Whole Berkeley Walk Part 4, our leaders Jacob and Zeke mapped a small detour to take our group of 50 hikers down our newest path. This one boasts a stunning view at the top as well as switchback stairs at the bottom. Come out and take a look!

A pretty perfect day on the 4th Annual Long Walk led by long-time BPWA Board member Mary Lynch. Thirty nine enthusiastic hikers joined us for the 13-miler from SF’s Ferry Building to Sausalito. A relaxing ferry ride back completed the terrific day. See you next year!

Oakland Estuary Walk

Susan Schwartz led an interesting and surprisingly beautiful walk today along the Oakland Estuary and into Jingletown. Despite the rainy morning, the Bay Trail, murals, and various types of structures, both residential and industrial, were intriguing.

Whole Berkeley Walk Series: Part 3

Posted on Mar 17, 2014

Well, we had 65 people on the hike at the beginning. It’s the toughest one of the three for sure and according to Zeke and Jacob, the most difficult in the series. It took 3.5 hours and that was because we basically ran the last half hour. Many peeled off and fifteen finished and signed out. Beautiful day. I think everyone is really tired tonight.

We sang Happy Birthday to Zeke who turned 13 yesterday.

Power Walk

Posted on Mar 9, 2014

A fast, fit group joined leader Colleen Neff on the 3.5 mile Power Walk this morning. Even those who thought they knew all the paths found some new ground to explore on our trip up to Tilden Park and back. Thanks all for coming out for the first walk on Daylight Savings Time!
