Tassajara Creek Hike

Join us in the rolling Black Hills of Mount Diablo and Morgan Territory for a SATURDAY hike out of Finley Road at 9:30 am. A hiker's choice of a moderate+ 8.3 mile/1400' hike or a 10 mile/1840' challenging one. Due to very limited parking at the trailhead, this is a mandatory carpool hike; we will meet at Danville Park & Ride at 9:00 am!

Please download and print out the trail route map here. Once we make the 20 minute drive, our journey begins with a 3/4 mile walk up the paved road to get to the trailhead.
