Wild Cat Creek

This is where a kid can be a kid! This is actually where the wild things are, and the faeries, and the lord of the flies. Take this nature walk off Lake Anza, and immerse yourself in the real CA ??

Best view of the SF Bay Area around! You can see all of the SF, Berkeley, and Oakland. Definitely check out the sunset from the top! Hiking to the top is a great workout, or you can drive up as well.
Berkeley Pier! Great stroll on the pier on a nice day! Awesome view of the bay and the city!
Grizzly Peak Blvd
The ultimate makeout spot! Or just enjoy the gorgeously breathtaking view of the entire Bay Area from this lookout. There are many pullouts with different angles, the first and last are the best.
A beautiful hike that rewards you with stunning views of the bay as well as San Pablo Reservoir. Start at the visitors center and take a left to the trail. There are also farm animals at the bottom!
Grizzly Peak Blvd
Take your dog, go sit on a log, and watch a breathtaking sunset over the entire Bay Area. Your dog might appreciate a nearby trail run first, and then he'll be chill while you soak it all up ??
A beautiful nook in Tilden complete with a beach area to swim and sunbathe. There are great trails going around the lake and dogs walking along or some even swimming. The perfect afternoon getaway.

There are wonderful hiking trails inside the UC Berkeley campus, but this is the best view. Bring a date & cuddle overlooking the entire Bay Area, or go inside for fun exhibits for all ages.
1903-1909 University Avenue
A great place to walk around if you are going to visit the UC Berkeley campus. This is an infamous grass hill that most students gather on to eat study or talk. Check it out on 420 for the full effect

Must do hike in Berkeley! Pretty easy with a great view of the bay waiting for you at the end. Really fun to come up here and watch the sunset with some friends.
Family-friendly, day date friendly, dog friendly--Lake Anza is for a leisurely Sunday with light hikes, rock scrambling, and places to sit and eat lunch. Nestled in the Berkeley hills, this is a gem!
