We have a plethora of wilderness areas in the East Bay. The one I like best–based on proximity to my home and office–is Tilden Regional Park. There are hiking trails galore here, and these crisp Autumn days are perfect for a trek through the “wilderness”.
Driving to get to a trail head is a little more complicated now. South Park Drive, one of the main routes to many of the park’s attractions, is closed through April 1st in honor of the mighty mating migration of the newt. Not THAT one, and not an April Fool’s joke. Really.
Another detour to be aware of this weekend involves driving around Berkeley on the 22nd. It won’t be easy. There’s going to be a four race half marathon that takes runners on a tour of the city.
If a walking tour sounds better to you, you might want to buy this book. “Berkeley Walks: Revealing Rambles through America’s Most Intriguing City” by Janet Byron and Bob Johnson outlines some interesting and historical routes. In it you’ll find walks that take you by Bill and Hillary Clinton’s love nest and the abode of the Unabomber when he spent time here as a UC prof.
Here are some more pre-Thanksgiving activities that might also serve as post Thanksgiving ways of helping your body balance out the eating of mass quantities of delicious food.
