so much streetlife. I miss SF.

Now is one of the best time to check out  bay area trails, meadows and parks. Flowers are starting to bloom, everything is hella green and summer hasn’t arrived yet to turn all the grass brown. Here are some of my picks.
East Bay —-> Lake Chabot = Hiking, Biking, Fishing and Boat Rental http://www.ebparks.org/parks/lake_chabot
Mission Peak = Advanced Hiking, Best View in the East Bay, Great Workout

Berkeley Fire Trail = 7 Full Miles of Hiking, Lots of little trails, Great View of the Bay
