Meeting Place: The Colusa Circle in front of Semifreddi’s, 372 Colusa Ave., Kensington

Transit: El Cerrito Plaza BART to AC Transit #25

This two-hour hike will take us on the eight accessible pathways in Kensington. We will also walk through the historic Sunset View Cemetery, stopping at two noteworthy markers: the tombstone of Robert Gordon Sproul, president of UC from 1930-1958; and the stone memorial, erected by the City of Berkeley, to honor Helen Crandall, a volunteer nurse who died caring for patients in Berkeley during the 1918 Influenza epidemic. No dogs, please.
