Indian Rock Park is a 1.18-acre (4,800 m2) public park at 950 Indian Rock Avenue in the city of Berkeley, California, on the slope of the Berkeley Hills. It is located in the northeast part of the city, about two blocks north of the Arlington/Marin Circle, and straddles Indian Rock Avenue. The central feature of the park is a large rock outcropping on the west side of Indian Rock Ave. The larger portion of the park, on the opposite side of the street, has several much smaller rock outcroppings, grass fields, and a small barbecue and picnic area. The rock is composed of Northbrae rhyolite.

  • Like few places in the world, the San Francisco Bay area has amazing exposures of interesting geology. Indian Rock Park is an outcrop of rhyolite right in the middle of residential Berkeley Hills...  more »
  • Great little park to go hike up a rock and see awesome views. Even the pot smoking teens with gigantic bongs right out in the open didn’t ruin my visit to this park…..  more »
  • Great view of the Bay, SF, Oakland. Climbing up is fun, and would recommend visiting during sunset hours. It looks like a secluded place in the middle of a residential area. You might have to wait and roam around to find street parking.
  • This cherished Berkeley bouldering spot has so much to offer. Ascend the gently sloping stairs to the top for breathtaking views of the city, stargaze by night, it's one of the best places to catch a meteor shower, or bring that special date. Then test yourself on legendary boulder problems that once tempting climbing greats. No matter what, you will not be disappointed! But please be respectful of the neighbors, and clean up your trash.
