Trail Notes:

Hidden Pond is one of the mountain’s beauty spots - a peaceful, lonesome pond, the quiet waters reflecting overhanging branches, the great mountain looming up behind. Paved parking pull-out at Curry Point, South Gate Road. No facilities. 5.8 miles mostly on dirt roads, total climb of 1170 feet.

Directions to Trailhead:

Due to limited parking spaces at the trailhead, let's meet at the Athenian School parking lot (corner of Diablo Road. and Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd) and then carpool from there to Curry Point parking area. The Athenian School is located at 2100 Mount Diablo Scenic Blvd in Danville. Directions: From Highway 680, exit at El Cerro Road and go east. It will merge into Diablo Road. Continue east past the Green Valley School and past the fire station. Continue on the two-lane road past the Diablo Country Club. Proceed to the stop sign. Turn left onto Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd. Turn right into the first driveway. From Athenian, we will carpool to Curry point inside the park, parking $5 per vehicle.

TrailHead Parking Fee: $6
