We will meet at the end of Castle Rock Rd. We take the Castle Rock trail to Stage Rd to the Dusty trail. Ascend Dusty to Briones Mt Diablo. Right a short distance to Little Yosemite on our right. We descend to Stage Rd and will pause there to rest and snack. Then back to the start. Lots of shade but about 25% sun. Water and restrooms near the start. Hike is about 7 miles and elevation about 600 ft. A relatively easy hike. Dogs are not allowed in Mt Diablo.
