Recharge Your Batteries In Between Classes: Best Beginner Trails Near UC Berkeley

One of the greatest things about living at IDENTITY Logan Park is the abundance of natural space near your home base in California. Just a few minutes from your home, and even closer to UC Berkeley’s campus, lie gorgeous parks sprawling for miles. Here are several hiking spots with the promise of sublime views where you can get a breath of fresh air in between classes. 

Grizzly Peak Trail

You’ll find the trailhead for Grizzly Peak Trail on Grizzly Peak Boulevard and Golf Course Road. It takes around two hours to hike to the top and back, and the increase in elevation is minimal. Like most hiking trails, make sure to keep your furry friend on a leash at all times, and your doggo can take in the views with you at Grizzly Peak Vista Point.

Clark Kerr Fire Trail

The Berkeley Fire Trails (Strawberry Canyon) are for hikers looking for fairytale scenery. The dog-friendly Clark Kerr Fire Trail is perfect for beginner and intermediate hikers and comes with the option to take a longer, two-hour version of the hike for more experienced roamers. Hit the Berkeley Overlook Vista Point located in the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve for breathtaking views. 

Lake Anza Trails

If you’ve only got a few minutes, or you’re just looking for a quick walk with a friend, visit Lake Anza to get your steps in for the day. This lake is a gorgeous retreat tucked away in Tilden Regional Park and comes with awesome beachy vibes. 

Keeping physically and mentally fit is easy when you live at IDENTITY Logan Park. Set goals for yourself, and work up to higher-level hikes throughout the school year – many of which can also be found nearby. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and always bring a buddy.
