A favorite weekend hike, with amazing views of San Francisco, Oakland and the Bay, seen from eucalyptus, pine and oak forests. A great workout too. Up Panoramic Hill from the Claremont Hotel, along Panoramic Ridge via the upper Strawberry Canyon fire trail to Chaparral Peak, down the new fire trail below Grizzly Peak to the lower Strawberry Canyon trail. Around the perimeter of Strawberry Canyon, back to the upper fire trail, then back down Panoramic Hill on the north side of the canyon. Especially nice at sunrise or sunset, or when there is thick fog down near the bay.

Very scenic. Saw a sign about mountain lion but didn't see any. What a disappointment!
