The views are stunning. The ride there is a windy road, but that's half the fun of going. You won't be disappointed by the views.

Stopped by GP to watch the sunset and was not disappointed. The view was absolutely phenomenal. It’s up some winding roads so just be prepared but it’s a short trek and absolutely worth it.

Here is an instant ride in the country, where you get very quickly away from all the traffic, noise, and crime of the city. Beautiful views, lots of gorgeous trees, and just a hop, skip, and a jump into Orinda for a movie, or Lafayette...More

This is not a negative review overall as the views are incredible. But the pull out we stopped at had graffiti covered logs and trash all over. It made me sad to see that so many people disregard the beauty of this place and left...More

Incredible views from up on top the hills and the street that runs along the crest with big houses all around. Go to the park.

I love driving along Grizzly Peak Blvd. But what's even better is being a passenger. There are several pull out areas where you can get an amazing view of the city, Golden Gate Bridge and the San Pablo bay.

On this road at top of Berkeley hills is the best bay view of SF plus bridges and Oakland skyline. Very quiet and relaxing.

The travel to Grizzly peak is quite steep and little scary but the view is breathtaking, as if the sparkling diamonds are spread all over the sea, hills, bridges, illuminating it like Diwali. It reminded me the view of the town when you take off...More

Most of the time I have been in the north bay when I'm up in the mountains. My first trip to Grizzly Peak did not disappoint! I was up there for sunset and it was beautiful. Saw a lot of deer as well. Great views...More

Find a good parking place looking out over San Francisco Bay to the Golden Gate bridge at sunset for a remarkable and unforgettable viewing experience. Unless you are feeling romantic leave before dark so the youngsters can have your space.

I never use Uber but I would guess that you can from anywhere in Oakland or SF. It was busy on the 4th because it is a good place for watching fireworks over the Bay.

We travel on this road weekly and it can be dangerous for bikers. Even the most experienced have had challenges. If you're itching to ride there please take care. Two weeks ago we saw a biker get hit and he didn't make it.
