Black Diamond Back Way Hike

Your choice hikes of
A Challenging 7.3 mile, 1400 ft.
or Challenging 9.3 mile, 1900 ft.
hike into EBRPD Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve.

Starting from the upper parking lot of Clayton Community Park, we head over the hill on Peacock Creek Trail. Then it's an out-and back on Mt. Diablo to Black Diamond/Cumberland Trail into the park.

Upon reaching the paved Black Diamond Trail, the short hike can stop for a snack break.

Meanwhile the long hike turns left on the Black Diamond Trail, continuing down to Nortonville turning right on Coal Canyon back up past Jim's Place, and left on Black Diamond Trail to the snack stop.

Both hikes return from the snack stop on Mt. Diablo to Black Diamond/Cumberland Trail to a left along Clayton Road. We follow the path next to the road until reaching Diablo View Middle School, turning left to take the hillside trail back up to the community park.
