    Paul, thanks for the lovely 2pm walk today, the one thru the Rose Garden.

    Here’s how I was notified of Jane’s Walks: info was sent to me from Julie@newvillagepress.net re: May 2010 Newsletter.

    Your map does not show the path in Crocker Highlands that connects Longridge and Sunnyhills Roads between Grosvenor and Carlston. Condition is fair and path is used. I try to do a rake and blow every couple of weeks.

      Stephen,

      Thanks for the info…and the regular cleanup! We’ll make sure that this path gets included on future maps.

    You were featured on KPIX’s EYE ON THE BAY show 2/14. Do you have a map of Oakland paths?

    • Oakland Urban Paths says:

      Local bookstores like Pegasus, Black Oak, Walden Pond and Builder’s Booksource carry the Walk Oakland! Map. It’s also in some local bike shops. Call and ask before you make the trip. We also sell copies of the map for $5 on our walks.

    I’ve known about the stairways and walkways for years and have used a few in my neighborhood of Glenview. Now that I’m walking more I’m starting to explore the stairways–I’m hooked! Glad to find your website. See you soon on a walk.

    Your invitations say “dogs welcome” but does not say that dogs must be on leash. I would think this would be a pretty much automatic requirement, but maybe I’m wrong. Please clarify. Thanks.

    • Gene says:

      Correct. In part because we are regularly walking next to or crossing busy streets, dogs need to be on leash for their safety if nothing else.

  6. Amelia Marshall says:

    There is a rumor going around that Dennis Evanosky will be leading a tour of the Hayward Fault and the Wilshire Heights landslide area.
    What date would this be?

  7. Sally McFadden says:

    I looked out my front window this morning and watched a big group of walkers cross 35th at Willis Ct. Someone in the group was wearing a shirt printed with the words OAKLAND URBAN PATHS, so I visited your website. What a great idea! I would love to join in on your next walk.

  8. BARBARA NEWCOMBE says:

    I notice that your Jan 11th Borax SMith walk will go past an interesting and perhaps not noticed path. When you leave the Cascade, your map shows going up Merritt and down Capital. I plan to meet you at the Cascade and point out where Cleveland street would have been and now isn’t. And later as you go down Capital, I will show you the other end of the street.
