Indian Rock Park reviews
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.
