Mt. Diablo
Green Valley to Rock City

City: Alamo
Region: EastBay
Park: Mt. Diablo

Sunday, May 20, 2007 @ 9:30 AM

Event Notes:

Expect temps in the 80's. If you have never done a Diablo Summit hike, but would like too, this hike or Paul's hike on saturday is an excellent prep. If there is interest, Howard and I will lead it in June.

Contact: Andrew Kincaid
Cell Phone: (925)

Trail Notes:

This is not an easy hike, but you will like it! 8 miles and 1,300' of elevation gain. All the gain occurs between Macedo Ranch and Rock City. After that, it is a "walk in the park". We will start at 9:30, so we will have time to snack and explore at Rock City. We will hike from Macedo via the Green Valley trail to the Summit trail. Ups and downs. After Rock City, we will return via Wall Point Rd. (one of my favorites). Total hike should be 4 hours +. 95% sun. Flush toilets and water at Macedo and Rock City. Need $3 for parking at Macedo. No dogs allowed.

Trailhead Directions:

From 680S/N, exit at Stone Valley and go east a couple miles to Green Valley Rd. (light). Left 1 mile to the end of the road (Macedo Ranch).

Parking Fee: $3.00
