  • We love the Claremont reserve. There are several nice trails with wild berries. The canyon is beautiful and provides beautiful views from the top I only have to complaints. People let their dogs poop on the trails and leave it behind! Also, a few of our favorite trails are unmaintained and one of them has been closed do to an active beehive, but it's been a long time so I dont think they're planning to open the trail again for a while.
  • Awesome hike with great views of Berkeley and San Francisco skyline. Steep wear comfortable walking shoes. Depending on the weather go early to find good parking and avoid heat. 2 hours round trip . Plenty on beaches to sit and enjoy the view.
