I liked the view, but you have to be carefull when you climb the rock. Once you are on top, you don't want to leave because there is so much to see.

Anytime of your day is perfect for this outing! I have taken the EZ stone walkway to the top of the rocks as well as the difficult jump to the steps; the difficult jump left me bruised and scratched up. I have seen dudes free-climb the rocks, and that is quite impressive. 420 friendly place (edibles worked the best) anytime... More

Just a short walk up the path from the corner of Solano and The Alameda. Climb the WPA steps to the top of this huge boulder and take in the views of San Francisco, Oakland, Richmond, and everything in-between. Or try your rock-climbing skills on the back side. This is the best of several "big rock" parks in Berkeley.

An outcropping of rock and some honking big eucalyptus trees, surrounded by bosky Berkeley hills neighborhoods. Wonderful panoramic view of the Bay, the Marin headlands and Golden Gate, and the San Francisco skyline. A great spot for a picnic lunch.

I'm sure this is not a unique review - this is by far the best view in Berkeley, and not a very difficult climb (there are several stairways chiseled right into the side of the rock!) Please, do yourselves a favor, and do not miss this sight. Even with some fog in the distance, you can still see the SF... More

I can walk here from my house. Its always fun to see the ever-changing weather over the bay. Nice uphill walk from Solano Ave. after dinner. Kids and agile adults like to climb the rock.

Little bit of a hike but totally worth it, beautiful view of the bay! There were a few people picnicking on the rock, which I thought was a great idea out in the warm sun. I will be back!

For worship temple/church/mosque is the place. For sunset Indian rock is the place. Sit on the rock and watch the sun slipping behind the mountain. The sky bids goodbye with the colors we can't buy. Our eyes thank us for this vivid view. Couples exchange hearts. Your imagination grows endless like the sky. The hard rock is a soft bed... More
