Oakland Urban Paths: Rockridge Ramble

From Oakland Urban Paths:

Join us to climb the many stairs of upper Rockridge, and cross SR 24 via pedestrian bridge. NOTE: This will be a walk with a lot of stairs, and more energetic than some of our walks. Less talking (though still some) and more walking. Dogs OK.
