Oakland Urban Paths: Anza Trail Exploration

From Oakland Urban Paths:

Join Oakland Urban Paths to explore the legacy of the Anza Trail in Oakland on a 6-mile walk in partnership with the National Park Service. We’ll start at the Peralta Hacienda Historical Park, 2465 34th Avenue at 10am, work our way to Mills College and return via the Laurel Business District. We will return to starting point no later than 1pm. There is ample parking on Coolidge or Hyde.

As always, bring water, sunscreen and a hat if desired. Healthy, happy dogs OK.
