What To Expect

Hike: The Stonewall-Panoramic East/West Trail - Derby Creek/Clark Kerr Trail Loop

Length of hike: 3.0 Miles

The most popular trail in Claremont Canyon is the Stonewall-Panoramic Ridge Trail, also referred to as the East/West Trail at its upper end. The trail begins at the Stonewall Rd. entrance to the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve. (Tip: Park on Tanglewood Rd. and walk up steps and sidewalk to the entrance)

The first half of the trail climbs through a eucalyptus grove. At the first switchback there’s a break in the trees with a nice view over UC Berkeley.

The trail climbs steeply up the northern ridge of Claremont Canyon for about a half-mile, offering spectacular vistas of almost the entire San Francisco Bay Region.

At the top of the hill, there’s a bench and the trail ends at paved Panoramic Way.  We turn right, resuming with a hiking path along the ridge. Where the trail continues steeply upward, we turn left and connect with a steep, eroded side trail that cuts through to the campus track back to Panoramic Way. From here we wind our way down the trail and eventual steps of Derby Canyon. Lastly, we cross the UC Berkeley Track and Field, down to a grassy area (overlooking beach volleyball courts) and back to Tanglewood Rd.
