Berkeley Walks celebrates the things that make Berkeley such a wonderful walking city—diverse architecture, panoramic views, tree-lined neighborhoods, historic homes, unusual gardens, secret pathways, hidden parks, vibrant street life, trend-setting restaurants, and intriguing history. Robert Johnson and Janet Byron—longtime city residents and tour guides—designed these 18 walks to showcase the elements that make Berkeley’s neighborhoods such fun to explore. Visitors will discover a vibrant community beyond the University of California campus borders, while locals will be surprised and delighted by the treasures in their own backyards.

“I’ve been walking the streets of Berkeley for close to fifty years, and now for the first time with open eyes. This book overflows with information and anecdotes; what a generous gift to residents and visitors alike.”
— Malcolm Margolin,
publisher, Heyday Books; and author, East Bay Out, The Ohlone Way
