Event Notes:

Spring Has Sprung on Diablo!


Join us for a lovely hike through meadows, peaks and canyons to celebrate the first day of Spring. A hiker's choice of a moderate 7.4 mile/1770 foot short hike or a challeging 9.3 mile/2500 foot long hike. This hike starts from Regency Gate, but we will make our way over to the Mitchell Canyon side of the park and climb to rarely used Black Point Summit.

Hike begins on Back Creek, right on Murchio, left on Bruce Lee Rd, right to Coulter Pine, straight onto Oak Rd, left on Mitchell Canyon, right on Black Point, right to stay on Black Point, left to Black Point Summit (out and back), left on Black Point.

Short hike will turn left on Red Rd., left on Globe Lily, right on Black Point, left on Mitchell Cyn Rd. If you would like to stop by the visitor center, continue to the parking lot, then continue to the end of the lot and rejoin other hikers on Bruce Lee Trail. Otherwise, bypass the lot by veering right on Terrace Trail, right on Bruce Lee Trail, left on Watertower Rd., right on Bruce Lee Road around the pond, then left on Murchio Rd. and left on Back Creek to Regency.

Long hike will turn right on Red Rd. from Black Point, then left on Olofson Ridge Rd. to the park boundary. This is a 2 mile out and back, not a loop!! Rejoin the other hikers by continuing past Black Point on Red Rd. and follow directions above.

Dogs are not allowed in the park. Facilities are located at the Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center only. As always, detailed maps are available and flour arrows will guide your way.
