The eclectic spirit of Oakland

with the sights & sounds of nature

The VILLAGE of Montclair offers the best of both worlds:  browse independent bookstores and shops, find friendly baristas and dine at stylish restaurants with diverse cuisine.  And once you finish at the VILLAGE, hike or bike up the hairpin turns into the redwood forests of our regional parks.  Montclair offers a pedestrian-friendly village while exuding a mountain town vibe.

SEE Nature

Just off the Oakland streets, you find the old rail bed of the Sacramento Northern Railway.  This 1.5 mi path provides a natural setting for walking (and dogs), jogging, hiking and bicycling.  


Get Active

From nature walking to hiking and riding bicycles up the steep hills to our yoga, pilates and fitness studios in the village; there is an adventure for everyone.
