Looking for a pleasant Sunday morning urban hike with a leafy autumn view? If so, join us for this 5 +/- mile urban loop hike, with hills and curves, around Berkeley Lake. We will hike once around the  lake loop which includes a forest side trail.  Our starting and finishing point with be the Berkeley Lake City Hall parking lot across the street from Lake Berkely Chapel. You can't miss it.

This is a paved street hike with only a partial sidewalk section and forest trail, so please be sure to wear reflective and/or bright clothing. There is some local neighborhood road traffic, but generally very light. You are responsible for your own safety.

Lake Berkeley has been named a Tree City USA for 18 years!
