From the Berkeley area, take 24 east to the interchange of 680/24 in Walnut creek. Take the Ygnacio Valley road exit. Turn right at the end of the ramp and follow Ygnacio Valley road for about 5 miles to the intersection of Oak Grove Road. Applebee's is on the right in the shopping center before the light.

From Benicia and areas north, take 680 south the Treat Blvd exit. Take Treat Blvd north for about 3 to 4 miles to Oak Grove Road. Turn right on Oak Grove and go about 2 miles to Ygnacio Valley Road. Turn right on Ygnacio and go to the first light and make a U turn, you will see Applebee's on your left before making the U turn.

Event Notes:

We will meet outside the park in order to carpool and save money on the vehicle park fee. We'll meet at 1:30 in the parking lot of the Applebee's restaurant at the corner of Ygnacio Valley Road and Oak Grove in Walnut Creek. I will have an orange bike flag on my car so people can spot us easily.

If you choose to go directly to the trailhead, we will begin hiking by 2:00 at the Angel Kerley Road trailhead marker on North Gate Road at the hair-pin turn. It is grid 5D for those that have a Mt. Diablo map. Otherwise use the following internet link(s) for a Mt. Diablo map.

It is a relatively easy trail, very wide, and well groomed, with both sunny and shady sections and a few small creeks. Dogs NOT permitted.
