Beautiful climb out of Berkeley, CA. Starts out on small, Berkeley-style roads with a fair amount of traffic, but eventually goes up higher into the mountain areas at Grizzly Peak. The road condition is excellent, and while there can be a fair amount of traffic on some days, most days are pretty sparse. If you're feeling strong, try heading to Seaview Trail at the top of Grizzly Peak, which has a final 1 km kicker of around 14%, with even more stunning views of the reservoir, Orinda, and Mt. Diablo. Stunning sunsets.

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Spruce Avenue to Grizzly Peak

Ride 5.5 miles gaining 1,357’ at 4.6% average grade.

This is a great climb that is fairly consistent at 4-6% the entire route.  You will never see a double digit gradient on this climb and the steepest quarter mile is a very manageable 8%.

We ride along the western edge of the 2,079 acre Tilden Park most of this climb. While we are on city streets the entire ride, the street in both directions is marked with cycling right of ways painted on the roadway.

Climb begins on Spruce Street, the western boundary of the Berkeley Hills.

There are several openings in the last mile that offer exceptional views of San Francisco Bay.

Finish at Grizzly Peak.

This peak is named after grizzly bears which inhabited the area until the late 1800s.
