Event Notes:

We start from Juniper Camp on Mt Diablo. We will hike to Diablo Summit, North Peak, and then Olympia. It is an out and back hike. This is a very difficult hike because of the elevation gains and losses. The distance of 6+ miles is not the tough part. Experienced hikers only. I will reserve a campsite at Juniper. Parking will be limited. Carpools encouraged. No dogs.
