Lets's hike some of the Berkeley Secret Trails and Panoramic Hill. We will meet at North Berkeley BART and leave at 1:10 sharp and head out along Berkeley's newest in-town off-road biking/hiking trail to downtown, then up through campus and on to Panoramic Hill. The approximate mileage of this hike is 7-8. Be sure to bring a pint of water, as parts of the hike are away from urban services. Although a very steep section of trail down Panoramic Hill will be bypassed, small parts of the descending trail are still rather steep. Wear shoes with some grip on the sole, not sandals or other smooth-soled shoes. The end point is a pub near Ashby BART.
We will take a lunch break so bring something to eat if you will be hungry.
A BART strike or heavy rain may cause us to cancel this hike.
