From lower Dwight going east turn left at Prospect. Go to the UC Berkeley stadium. From there, turn right onto Panoramic Hill (it will say “no outlet” ) and follow the curves around back and forth. There will be 2 hairpin turns, one to the left and at the big round mirror make a hair pin turn to your right until you reach Dwight Way again. Aerie is the first house on the left after Panoramic turns back into Dwight Way again.
Please do not bring more than 1 car into our neighborhood. If you are driving please be careful about where you park your car. See the interactive map for where it is OK to park. You can park tucked into the nook in the driveway. Pull forward or back so 2 cars can fit. You can also park in the driveway pulled up towards the garage. Generally with driveway parking park so as many other cars can fit as possible and so that you are not blocking anyone. You may also park parallel to the wooden fence across the street. Do not park in the neighborʼs driveway. If you are able to walk, you can park at the top of Dwight Way and go through Claremont Canyon for a beautiful 15 minute nature hike (recommended).
There are a number of buses that go through campus, to the bottom of Panoramic Hill from where you can walk up. 51B will take you to the bottom of Panoramic Hill, from the downtown Berkeley BART. Please see walking directions for how to hike up from the bottom of Panoramic Hill.
Walking & Biking
The best way to get here is to walk if you are able to and leave your bike or car at the bottom of the hill. This will be a gorgeous 15-20 minutes walk.
1. Hike through Claremont Canyon from the top of Dwight Way. It is a beautiful hike for daytime hours. The flag on the map represents a large rock where you turn left and go up the hill. Wear your hiking shoes!
2. From the UC Berkeley Campus- there are stairs that go straight up the hill. Recommended if itʼs dark. Wear your walking shoes!
Please see this helpful map for a better view of the neighborhood.
Welcome. An Aerie is a high-up nest, often of eagles or falcons. We are home to Nymue and Bronwyn and sweet gatherings of ancient souls seeking wisdom, the nourishment of our destiny and vibrant community.
