KPIX Eyewitness News report from March 5th 1973 by Bill Hillman featuring a visit to the community of Canyon, located in the hills between Oakland and Moraga CA, on the Pinehurst Road. Also includes scenes of Hillman interviewing local resident Barry Smith and others about what it's like to live there. Smith reflects that: "Probably when people start coming out here on the BART trains, looking for a place to live, little valleys like this one aren't gonna be here anymore ... They're not really making any provision for any open land at all. And by the time it's too late, people are gonna realize that the very reasons for why they moved out to suburbia in the first place are gone."
