Merriewood Stairs with Neal Parish

August 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Thornhill Elementary
5880 Thornhill Dr
Oakland, CA 94611

Join Oakland Urban Paths as Neal Parish leads us on some stairs…a lot of stairs…in the Merriewood area of Montclair. The walk will begin in front of Thornhill Elementary School on Thornhill Drive. We’ll then climb 637 steps (not all at once) and travel along some of the winding streets in the area.

Because of the lack of sidewalks, steep steps, and other factors, no dogs or strollers on this walk. We’ll be limiting the group size a bit smaller than usual because of the logistics.

As always, bring water, a hat and sunscreen as needed.

Please sign up on Eventbrite, and hope to see you on the stairs!

  1. Hi! The Merriewood Stairs are among my favorite paths/stairs in Oakland, and I look forward to leading this walk. Please be advised that we are not doing this the easy/short way — we will be climbing up all 637 (steep) steps as we begin our walk, and we will then be walking on some fairly narrow roadways without sidewalks, including a stretch along Broadway Terrace. Participants on this walk should be prepared to climb the stairs and to walk safely and single file on the roads. Because of the narrow roads, please do not bring any dogs on the walk, and obviously strollers will not work because of the stairs.

  2. Hi Neal,

    I was just recently told about Urban Paths and I may well be able to join you on the 12th. Where do you meet to start this hike?
