A Walk on Hidden Pathways in North/West Piedmont

Now open for RSVPs. The only cost is $2 for adults & kids free. This is a brand new walk & is done jointly with my walking group. Also, we will start at a spot we have never started at before called "Noble Cafe." We used to start our walks that begin in Oakland at a Starbucks that is about a block away at Grand & Broadway but we were bothered there by beggars & smokers.

I encourage attendees to take public transportation, but if one needs to drive there is free parking at Oakland meters on Sundays. Though this new starting place is a little further away from the 19th Street BART Station, it is still fairly close. It will give us more room & fewer problems. Also, it is closer to our next stop, the nearby Whole Foods Market.

Below is a link to Noble Cafe:

Then we walk to Whole Foods where people may use it's large restrooms & buy drinks and/or a sack lunch. Then we walk to our lunch spot, the Oakland Morcom Rose Garden, arriving about 11:50 AM. After lunch we will walk to nearby Piedmont. We will also visit Piedmont Park as there is a grocery store and restrooms there.

We expect to return to our starting point at 3:45 PM. I walked the route, May 29, 2012,and uploaded the below photos as a sample of what we will see on the route.

    My first meet up event. Great day and good people. Very enjoyable walk. Howard did an excellent job. Would have enjoyed more info on what we saw but maybe that's not within the scope of the event.

    This was a joint walk of this group & my much larger walking group. Only 14 showed up. We got to see the Davidson Way pathway that we worked on June 10th and saw that City Hall had finally removed the 15 garbage bags of weeds we had left behind.
