Indian Rock is a little know local gem of a place to climb and view the sun set into San Francisco Bay. You get a 180 degree, unobstructed view of the Bay and can enjoy the serenity of such a perfect setting for watching the Bay and its awe inspiring beauty. It is also a great little work out to...

A REALLY big rock, a small hill actually, in the middle of a pretty neighborhood. Walking around, you'll see other big outcroppings in people's yards. Fun to climb up on, if you're spry (though please be careful!) Great views. And the little park across the street has a lovely bench to sit on, from which to look out to San... More

Tucked away at the confluence of several streets is Indian Rock Park. This is a strange silver rock oputcrop near the top of a hill. Once you go to the top your view over the bay and back towards San Francisco is spectacular. You need aclear day to maximise the view.

This is a local must do site. You get a chance to climb a beautiful rock, get a great view of San Francisco and the East Bay, as well as check out some of the local climbers. Many famous athletes started here, but don't worry, there is an easy path for most of us!

One place most visitors might not know about is this big Rock in the middle of the neighborhood.. You climb the steps and on top is the best view of the bay area.
