The fence that had blocked the Santa Fe Right-of-Way just north of Lincoln Street is open for a six-month trial, thanks to the Berkeley Parks Department. This means you can walk or cycle this 1880s rail route from University Avenue in Berkeley to San Pablo at McDonald, on the El Cerrito-Richmond border. You’ll find community gardens, public art, play areas, and restored creeks on the level, 4.5-mile route (known as the Ohlone Greenway and running under BART in Albany and El Cerrito).
Try it out! Please report any problems in the area of Delaware to Cedar Streets in Berkeley to Berkeley Path Wanderers — email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
