Itinerary:

 

Grab your morning coffee & cinnabon and join us for a morning hike around  Berkley Lake!  We'll cover a distance of 7-8 miles.

Pace may fluctuate between slow and moderate, but not too fast. You're welcome to do the same, but not required. Just keep up with the group! This hike tends to be very social and friendly.

This is an urban hike mainly on paved streets (Some sections have sidewalks and there is a short forest path) with small amount of local neighborhood car traffic. There are several uphills and our pace will be moderate.

We will hike most of the lake loop (Lake Shore Drive to North Berkely Lake Road and back) which includes a 1 mile forest greenway loop 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 bright clothing so you can be seen by drivers. There is some local neighborhood road traffic, but generally very light. We will be hiing against any oncoming traffice. You are responsible for your own safety.

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