Explore Stonewall Panoramic trail and the plethora of what Claremont Regional Preserve has to offer. An excellent choice if you are visiting UC Berkely and are in search of an activity. A great spot to enjoy the sunset over the Bay No Bikes

Started at Strawberry Pool and ran up a narrow path up until the start of this trail. Over brooks and amidst Eucalyptus trees. It is a lovely route that is definitely runable for trail runners. The decline back is the perfect pitch with a few technical areas, not much. A great run while child is at swim lessons at sunset!

Basically a fire trail that winds out UC Berkeley you can park at either end of the trail. There are a couple of interesting shortcuts through a redwood grove. It is quite popular with professional dog walker's so it can be difficult to find parking at the base. It has great views of the Goldengate. It also has a lot of eucalyptus.

The first mile, mile and a half are the most challenging with one very steep hill, but it eventually levels out to a wide, gentle uphill fire road. At the UC Berkeley campus building at the top, continue to the left to take a break at the Lawrence Hall of Science and look out over the SF Bay. Plan 3-3.5 hours to make the whole out and back trip. We parked at the bottom of the hill and space was limited to about 10 cars. Beware of leaving valuables in your vehicle as there was lots of glass from a couple of broken car windows.

This trail is not moderate, it's hard. Steep hills and many of them. Slippery and steep declines too. Better wear a top notch hiking shoe with good traction. Maybe even bring a hiking stick too. This trail is best tackled before noon because the sun is unforgiving up there. The views are absolutely beautiful.

Great hike with spectacular views, especially when there's a clear sky. There's a good amount of shade from the trees on the way. My dog had a lot of fun!

One pretty steep incline, but the rest of the hike was pretty easy. Lots of shade throughout the hike and my dog had a fun time too.

Fairly flat since it's a fire road but nice views of the bay. Great for walking dogs. Nice hike if you're in the area but wouldn't go out of your way to do this trail.
