Incredible views from up on top the hills and the street that runs along the crest with big houses all around. Go to the park.

I love driving along Grizzly Peak Blvd. But what's even better is being a passenger. There are several pull out areas where you can get an amazing view of the city, Golden Gate Bridge and the San Pablo bay.

On this road at top of Berkeley hills is the best bay view of SF plus bridges and Oakland skyline. Very quiet and relaxing.

The travel to Grizzly peak is quite steep and little scary but the view is breathtaking, as if the sparkling diamonds are spread all over the sea, hills, bridges, illuminating it like Diwali. It reminded me the view of the town when you take off...More

Most of the time I have been in the north bay when I'm up in the mountains. My first trip to Grizzly Peak did not disappoint! I was up there for sunset and it was beautiful. Saw a lot of deer as well. Great views...More

Find a good parking place looking out over San Francisco Bay to the Golden Gate bridge at sunset for a remarkable and unforgettable viewing experience. Unless you are feeling romantic leave before dark so the youngsters can have your space.

Fifty years ago I had a room on Grizzly Peak Boulevard. I shall never forget the view, from Mount Tam and the Golden Gate Bridge looking west to the Oakland Hills to the east, with San Francisco and the Bay Bridge straight ahead. I wandered...More

For the best views of San Francisco and SF Bay, Grizzly Peak is the best place to go. Since I live in the area I have been up here countless times. Located high in Berkeley Hills, you can get to Grizzly Peak from all directions...More

Enjoy the view as one drives essentially at the top of the Berkeley Hills. Curvy road, but very enjoyable. On the side opposite to the Bay is Tilden Park, well worth a visit on its own

Every week my son and I travel this route where we can see the most beautiful views from above. It is a must-see for travelers to this area. On a clear day it is the Bay Area at it's finest.

I never use Uber but I would guess that you can from anywhere in Oakland or SF. It was busy on the 4th because it is a good place for watching fireworks over the Bay.

We travel on this road weekly and it can be dangerous for bikers. Even the most experienced have had challenges. If you're itching to ride there please take care. Two weeks ago we saw a biker get hit and he didn't make it.

YEs, there is free parking throughout the Tilden area and Grizzly peak has several areas you can pull out and see the view of the bay area.
