Grizzly Peak Blvd from Downtown Berkeley BART

This is the page for climbs starting from Downtown Berkeley BART, part of a comprehensive index of climbs to Grizzly Peak Boulevard from BART stations.

My fist choice route is via Spruce. It is popular with cyclists of all types, has water at the top, and takes you to within 2 blocks of the northern end of Grizzly. Wide lane provides room for bikes, and drivers are used to seeing bikes. Claremont route uses 2 bike boulevards (Milvia, Russell), or you can take Tunnel Road from the same starting point. Centennial route is for masochists and mountain goats.

via Spruce 3.1 miles, +635 feet Recommended Route

Via Claremont Drive 4.4 miles, +1,140 feet

Via Tunnel Road 7.1 miles, +1,310 feet

Via Centennial Drive 3 miles, 1,070 feet - very steep!
