Walk around Lake Merritt on the paved jogging path. Take a walk. The 3.4 mile multi-use path rings the lake is popular among joggers
The lake near my house. Always a pleasant easy stroll
Very easy but nice walk on a mostly flat trail around a beautiful lake in the center of Oakland. Always great for people watching.
Good city walk. Use to work close by with time on my hands so i did it more than a few times. Not as good in the middle of the summer when the lake can have a bit of a smell to it.
Nice urban pleasant walk. It's scenic and there are lots of great restaurants and pit stops for kids.
