Let's do the Rockridge Ramble to Lake Temescal and the surrounding area. We will meet at the Rockridge BART station at 12:30. At 12:40 sharp we will head over to the Rockridge Market Hall to sample the cheeses and pick up a lunch if needed and then head into the hills up to Lake Temescal. At the lake there are a couple of hiking trails, picknicking spots and even swimming if you wish. We will end up back in the Rockridge BART area for happy hour.
The Lake Temescal website also says they charge a $3 for beach access and/or swimming. I was there last year and we were able to just stay in the hiking, picknicking and grassy areas around the lake and not pay the fee. It might be a good idea to bring a towel or something to sit on.
This walk will have some great views, paths, stairways, gardens etc. Latecomers (if not too late) can try to find us at Rockridge Market hall. Look for us in the coffee bar section. Hope to see you there.
