Announcing a new Meetup for Bay Area Everything Outdoors Club for 20,30,40 year olds!

What: Sunset hike up Claremont Canyon

When: December 6,[masked]:30 PM

Price: $1.00 per person

Where:
Claremont Canyon
Stonewall Rd
Berkeley, CA 94701

We will meet on Sunday at 3:30 PM at the entrance to the park on Stonewall Road and should be back by 6:30 PM. At that point, those that want to can head over to crepe vine on college avenue for dinner after the hike.

The hike is STEEP from the start, but we will only be ?climbing? for about 40 minutes before it gets flat-ish. We won?t be going super fast, but if you don?t like steep trails, this won?t be a fun one for you.

Bring water, a hat, layers (as the weather turns cold when the sun sets) and a flashlight, if you have one. If you tend to get hungry while hiking, bring snacks that are easy to consume as you hike? as we will be walking most of the time.

The views along the way will be amazing. This is a great place to watch the sun set. We will also have some moonlight, though this will not be a full moon.

To reach the Stonewall trailhead entrance from Highway 24, exit Fish Ranch Road immediately east of the Caldecott Tunnel. Go up Fish Ranch Road about one mile to the four-way stop. Continue through the stop; Fish Ranch becomes Claremont Ave. Continue for about 3 miles. Make a right onto Stonewall Road and continue for approximately up the road for about 1/10 a mile to the trailhead.

A good place for carpoolers to meet would be the Rockridge BART station, which is right near Crepe Vine and very close to the trail head. From there, just drive on college to Claremont Avenue, head east on Claremont, and turn left at Stonewall Road.



Hope to see you there!
