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

Indian rock is a unique area of large boulders which is a traditional place for budding climbers to learn/hone their skills and for families and couples to sit in the spring and summer to watch the sunset. Small children should be under the watchful eyes of parents.

It's a big rock that you can quickly "rock climb" up or easily walk up the stone carved stairways to see one of the most fabulous views of the SF Bay Area. Easy to get to and easy to do.

Anyone who lives in Berkeley (especially North Berkeley) knows about Indian Rock. To really do the locals thing, get to Indian Rock by walking up the path that begins at the stoplight at Solano Ave and The Alameda. It's a slightly steep two-block walk past Mendocino Ave and The Arlington. When you get to Indian Rock, expect to see young... More

This little park is a gem. An easy climb up a large rock formation leads to a spectacular panoramic view for miles around. People lounging and sunning on the rocks, kids playing, nice atmosphere.

I grew up within 2 blocks of Indian Rock and it was always an adventure to climb around on it. I loved the stories of the early Native Americans who lived with and around the Rock. As an adult, I always bring visiting friends here to see the wonder 180+ degree view from the top.
