Last sunday's hike was 6.4 miles, with only 200' of elevation gain. This is only slightly more difficult.
Cell Phone: (925)
We start from Macedo Ranch at 10:00, and take the Barbeque trail to Rock City. We return from Rock City via Wall Point Rd. Total distance is ~ 7 miles, with 1,000' of easy elevation gain, because it is spread over 3+ miles. This is not a difficult hike, and the views from Wall Point are astounding. Rock City is a great place to explore and snack. I have allowed 1/2 hr. for that. No dogs allowed in Mt. Diablo.
Parking Fee: $3
If you are coming from the Concord area, take 680S to the Stone Valley exit going east. About 2+ miles to Green Valley Road (stop sign). Left on GVR ~ 1 mile to the staging area (end of the road). Flush toilets at the staging area.
From the south, take 680N to Diablo Rd going east. About a mile until it intersects with El Cerro (traffic light). Right 1/2 mile to Green Valley Rd. (traffic light). Left on GVR ~ 1 mile to the staging area.
Bring the exact change ($3) for the parking fee.
