An established oak that looks over Moffit's basement courtyard.
- <N 37°52'17.0" W 122°15'41.1">
The southeast corner of VLSB has two sizeable trees: an oak that looks into one of the larger lecture halls, 2060, and a pine that sits over the large, rectangular exhaust pits in the corner. Regular cement grooves let you climb into the pit, and a thin, sloped ledge reaches the window sills horizontally.
- <N 37°52'19.4" W 122°15'39.1">
Two rows of tall, thin aspens flank the lamps in front of the gym. They move considerably in the wind.
- <N 37°52'16.6" W 122°15'22.8">
The largest oak in Faculty Glade looks north over the Last Dryad. This bronze by Alexander Stirling Calder sat in the inner courtyard of Hearst Gym until it was moved to the glade in 1968.
- <N 37°52'15.0" W 122°15'20.6">

- <N 37°52'19.7" W 122°15'21.7">
A long, angled branch spans the gap between two oaks, forming a path 35' over Strawberry Creek. Look down to see into the faculty club.
- <N 37°52'18.5" W 122°15'28.4">
The tallest of a stand of ponderosa pines. After dusk, the shadow of anyone climbing can be seen on the southern face of the Campanile.
- <N 37°52'20.8" W 122°15'28.7">
A gallery of pollarded London Planes beneath the Campanile. The lowest branches of the first immediately northeast of the central sculpture can be reached from the back of the bench; another, in the southwest corner, is accessible from the marble wall. Try to circle the courtyard without touching the ground.
- <N 37°52'20.4" W 122°15'29.9">
A magnolia stands over South Hall Road, directly across from the Bancroft Librarysteps. The highest junction at 45' is one of the nicest spots on campus for a cold dusk.
- <N 37°52'16.1" W 122°15'31.5">
A cluster of tall, thin trunks are wired together on the southeast corner of Wheeler Hall. At 40', the third story window of 220 Wheeler is within reach, or, slightly farther, the lower tier of the roof. From there, the facade and the upper roof are a short climb away. The latter looks over the odd interior courtyard, which is accessible from the third floor, inward-facing hallway windows.
- <N 37°52'16.1" W 122°15'31.5">
Immediately south of the entrance is the new Wheeler Oak. The original was removed in 1934.
- <N 37°52'15.5" W 122°15'34.1">
The sloping southwest corner of Wheeler has three trees. The closest to Dwinelle looks over Sproul Plaza and the hills to the east. The top of the northmost is at eye level with the roof above the fourth story and the corner offices on the way up. Behind these, walk north through the small pocket between the west wall and a long, tall line of shrubs. Where the wall indents, it is an easy climb up to the third floor ridge and from there into classrooms, or down through skylight windows at foot level into basement classrooms. A dense thicket of dead roots and shrubs marks the entrance to this path from the northwest corner.
- <N 37°52'13.5" W 122°15'34.6">
Climb over the west side of Sather bridge into the first branch of the northmost oak. Descend the remaining 20' to reach the north bank of Strawberry creek. This offers access to the tunnel beneath the bridge during the rainy seasons when the sloped banks are too slippery.
- <N 37°52'26.4" W 122°15'30.1">
The wooden beams overhead offer access to the roof of the small, outdoor cafe with the chessboards. The cement walls around the electrical box form a nest that looks over Memorial Glade and Hearst Mining Circle. This is one of the nicest spots on campus to sit at night.
- <N 37°52'11.2" W 122°15'25.7">
Along the northern wall of Hearst Gym are a number of trees that look down onto the outdoor pool deck on the second story. The water is incredibly blue at night, lit from within.
- <N 37°52'11.0" W 122°15'23.7">
From the top of the westernmost tree behind Hearst Gym, climb over the fence and drop onto the pool deck. Due east, the deck opens to a mezzanine that surrounds a small patio below on the first floor. The Last Dryad originally sat here. A few oaks are tall enough to reach from the cement railing. Descend and exit through the northern door to the main gym hallway.
- <N 37°53'04.8" W 122°15'45.9">
The hill by the Berryman Reservoir entrance to Cordonices Park has an expansive oak that leans over Euclid Avenue. The highest central branch extends over the road.

- <N 55°56'28.9" W 3°11'27.7">
The Meadows are crossed by small, named paths, dividing large sections of park into grass and playgrounds. Each path is flanked by two long, parallel rows of trees that can be climbed to around 35' on smaller paths and 60' on the largest, which is called Middle Meadow Walk. You can cross almost the whole meadow without touching the ground.
- <N 55°55'23.4" W 3°11'31.1">
There are two metal towers up the hill past the Royal Observatory. The first, around 30' tall, has a caged latter followed by a horizontal gate that you can climb around. The second, 40' farther up the path and down the hill to the left, is much taller but is an easy climb after getting under the fence. Look north at sunrise or sunset to see across the Firth of Forth.
- <N 55°57'16.4" W 3°10'45.1">
Down the southeastern slope of Calton Hill is a small stone wall with gates on the northwestern and southeastern ends. Use the drooping tree to the right of the latter to climb over and a large, triangular private park lies within. All gates are locked both ways, so the same tree remains the best exit after exploring.
- <N 55°55'48.2" W 3°10'34.5">
At the northwest corner of the small park on the corner of Mayfield Road and West Savile Terrace, a break in the bushes opens to a metal platform that runs over the train track, 30' above.
- <N 55°57'54.3" W 3°11'55.4">
A long, low stand of trees line the path above the Water of Leith, looking over industrial buildings to the east and the abandoned Warriston Playing Fields to the west.
- <N 55°57'43.1" W 3°13'04.2">
Frozen in the winter, the lake in Inverleith Park is partially surrounded by a low hill lined with tall beech trees.
- <N 55°57'03.0" W 3°11'38.7">
From about 40' above the grass on the south of the tracks, this is the best vantage point to watch trains entering and exiting Waverly Station .
