This will be an in and back hike. We will pretty much stick to the main Castle Rock / Stage Coach Road Trail.
Plan is to hike for about 2 hours (1 hour in and 1 hour back), so mileage may vary depending on your pace, but anticipate 4-6 miles roundtrip. Dogs NOT permitted on this hike as we will be venturing into the Mount Diablo State Park side as well.
Cell Phone: (925) 457-7717

Dogs are permitted on select trails but must be leashed and under voice control at any posted area or parking lot.
Dogs may be off-leash in open spaces, provided they are under control at all times.
Dogs are NOT permitted in the picnic areas nor on any trails in Mount Diablo State Park (past the cattle gate).
