Event Notes:

Oktoberfest hike of Eagle Peak

A Challenging 7.3 or 7.8 mile/2300 ft hike of Mount Diablo's Eagle Peak.

The route will be Donner Canyon, Murchio Road, Back Creek Road, Bruce Lee Road, Coulter Pine, Mitchell Rock and Eagle Peak Trails to Eagle Peak for a snack break.

We will then return via Murchio Gap on the Eagle Peak Trail. From here the two hikes diverge with the shorter hike descending directly on Back Creek Trail.

The longer hike continues on Meridian Ridge Road, and Meridian Point Trails to Back Creek to rejoin the shorter hike.

Both hikes return to Regency Gate via Back Creek, Murchio Road, and Donner Canyon Road Trails.
