China, Yosemite, and a Secret Hike


Join us for an 8:30 am hike on beautiful Mt. Diablo. We'll explore the Great Wall of China, hike to Yosemite, and then take the Stage Line up to a Secret Trail high above the valley! This is a hiker's choice of a short 7.3 mile/1500' moderate hike, a medium 8.8 mile/1800' challenging hike, or a long 9.6 mile/2200' difficult hike.

Hike begins on Wall Point Rd., left on Briones-Mt. Diablo Trail. The medium/long hikes diverge at Little Yosemite for a 1.5 mile out and back staying on Briones-Mt. Diablo, left on China Wall Rd., past the wall itself all the way to the park boundary, then retrace back to Little Yosemite. All hikers will continue on Little Yosemite Tr., through the gate into EBRPD, right on Stage Rd through the gate into MDSP.

Hike continues on Stage Rd., right on Barbecue Terrace, right on Secret Trail and right on Wall Point Road. All hikers will break just up the road at Wall Point. After the break, all hikers continue down Wall Point Rd. The long hike turns left on Emmons Canyon Rd., a .8 mile/400' out and back slog down a steep canyon to the park boundary and back to rejoin the other hikers. All hikers continue down Wall Point Rd., making left turns all the way back to Macedo Ranch.
