Secret Stairs in Berkeley

Let's hike some of the secret stairs in Berkeley. We will meet at the Rockridge BART station at 1:30 p.m. At 1:40 sharp we will head over to the Rockridge Market Hall to sample the cheeses and pick up a lunch if needed and then head next to the Claremont area followed by Berkeley. We will do 2 of the walks from the book called Secret Stairs East Bay.

The walk will end in the Ashby area where we will have happy hour not too far from the Ashby BART station. The walk will end in the Ashby area and not back at Rockridge.
This walk will have some views, paths, stairways, hills 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.

We will meet at the BART station, right outside of the paid area, right next to the station agent booth. We will take a short lunch break.

    How can we get back to Rockridge station, take bart?

      You can do that but you have to switch trains. You might also want to look up and see if AC transit has any options. You might also consider walking.
