It is a new year! Now is the typical time that many people aim to get healthy and fit. Walking is a great way to start moving and reduce stress. Funny enough after living in Oakland for decades, I never explored the walking trail that lies behind Montclair Village. My neighbor Asha, who grew up in Detroit was the one who took me for my premier tour. Here is Asha and her son Jalen enjoying the sunny and crisp winter weather.
To get to the trail from Montclair Village, walk up LaSalle Avenue (above or east of Mountain Blvd). and where the street dead ends you will find stairs that lead up to the trail.
