Summertime fog? While the communities in the eastern part of the Park District typically sizzle in the summer months, low, rolling fog blankets areas close to the bay – a curious phenomenon caused when warm air off the coast meets the cold surface of the ocean. On summer afternoons, the fog funnels through the Golden Gate, hitting the Berkeley/Oakland hills and spreading laterally. It is no coincidence that Redwoods, which rely on fog to survive the hot summer months, are found in the Berkeley/Oakland hills.
Are you interested in this phenomenon? Consider attending the Twilight Fog Hike at Tilden Regional Park on July 18 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
TILDEN REGIONAL PARK, STEAM TRAIN OVERFLOW LOT – Let’s take a twilight hike on the Seaview Trail! From our vantage point we’ll hope to watch the fog roll in as the sun sets – always inspiring to watch, but notoriously hard to predict. Nevertheless, it will be amazing to be out on the ridge of the hills on an East Bay summer evening! Wear layers and sturdy shoes. Bring water and a snack. A flashlight or headlamp is a good idea too. Park in the Steam Train Overflow Lot and meet at Seaview Trail.
