Event Notes:

this will be a 6.25 mile out and back hike on the MIWOK TRAIL(think fire road all the way). There is very little elevation gain on this hike, just a few rollers in the beginning. It should be beautiful out in the valley this time of year (think green grass , old tractors and farm implements and maybe wild flowers too) Bring fluids as there is only water and restrooms at the staging area. We will be having a brief rest/snack stop at the gate to the LOS VAQUEROUS WATERSHED. NO DOGS allowed in this park

Trail Notes:

We will be doing an easy, out & back hike of 6 miles on the Miwok Trail (75% sun). This site is on the east side of Mt. Diablo, so allow plenty of time to get there (it takes 45 minutes from San Ramon).

Due to the sensitive nature of the wildlife habitat at Round Valley, dogs are not allowed in the park.


Trailhead Directions:

From Walnut Creek: From I-680, exit at Ygnacio Valley Road. Proceed eastbound towards Concord to Clayton Road (about 8 miles). Right turn onto Clayton road. Clayton Road becomes Marsh Creek Road in Clayton. Proceed east on Marsh Creek Road, past Deer Valley Road until you reach the Preserve Staging area on your right. The Staging area is located approximately 7.5 miles past the Marsh Creek Detention Facility, or about 20 minutes east of dowtown Clayton.

From Brentwood: Take Walnut Blvd south to Marsh Creek Road, turn right onto Marsh Creek Road. When Marsh Creek Road intersects with Camino Diablo Road, bear right to stay on Marsh Creek Road. You will reach the Preserve Staging Area on your left.

Coming from the south (Livermore area), take Hwy 580 to Vasco Rd. north about 15 miles to Camino Diablo (traffic light). Left about 5 miles to RVP on the left. Note that Camino Diablo's name changes to Marsh Creek Rd. after about 2 miles.

Parking Fee: no charge
