City: Blackhawk Park: Morgan Territory Regional Preserve
Yes, we lead difficult hikes and this is one of them. It is the Riggs Canyon loop. 7 miles and 2,000 feet of elevation gain in 2 miles. The elevation gain in a mile section is very steep. Do not attempt this if you are not capable of hiking steep slopes. Please ignore the trail notes. We are hiking north, not south. Next time I will submit a new hike. The directions to the site are accurate.Contact: Andrew Kincaid
Exit I-680 at Diablo Rd in Danville and go EAST towards Mt Diablo (away from downtown Danville...that would be LEFT from Southbound I-680 or RIGHT from Northbound I-680. Go EAST under freeway about ½ mi to "Y" in road. Take Right onto Camino Tassajara Rd. Stay on Camino Tassajara by turning LEFT at intersection with Sycamore Valley Rd. Follow Camino Tassajara east about 7 miles past Blackhawk and other housing developments. When you pass school on left, will become open space. Watch for Finley Rd & turn LEFT. Follow road about 2 miles & park alongside road. No parking within last ½ mile! If you see no parking signs, you have gone too far.
