NORTH BERKELEY/KENSINGTON HIKE, THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2006
This hike will involve some combination of North Berkeley and exotic Kensington, and will take us in a loop from the flats to Tilden Park or Wildcat Canyon and back. Expect big houses, park paths, steep stairways, historic rocks, breathtaking views, and a cemetery with great feng shui. We'll probably go 5 miles or so.
Meet at 10:00 am at El Cerrito Plaza BART station. Look for a pink WW sign. Bring lunch, water, and sunscreen. Wear sturdy shoes. Expect to be back around 2:00 pm.
FOUR HILLS/TWIN PEAKS HIKE, SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 2006
We'll walk up into the hills surrounding the Castro, visit the Pink Triangle, and hope to see feral parrots, black-crowned sparrows, and some late wildflowers. Expect steep hills and stunning views. We'll have a brief snack break, not a long lunch break. We'll probably go about 4 1/2 to 5 miles. This walk will borrow from both the Four Hills hike and the Twin Peaks hike.
Meet at 11:30 am at the corner of Castro and Market, just outside the Muni station. Take public transportation today!—parking is very unlikely in the Castro on June 24. Look for a pink WW sign. Bring snacks, water, warm layers, and sunscreen. Wear sturdy shoes. Expect to be back around 2:00 pm. Click here for directions.
If you've enjoyed City Hikes, consider scheduling a hike next time you have out-of-town visitors, or for your next family reunion, company team-building event, or special party. Click here for more information about San Francisco City Hikes. To return to this page, use your browser's Back button.
