Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is a small regional park mainly located in the city of Oakland, California, and administered by the East Bay Regional Park District. The park is named for the canyon in which it's situated, Claremont Canyon, out of which Claremont Creek flows on its way to its confluence with Temescal Creek. Originally, the canyon was named "Harwood's Canyon", then "Telegraph Canyon". The name was changed to Claremont by a developer of the nearby Claremont district.Plan a trip to Berkeley easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

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.

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.
