Event Notes:

A moderate, 5- to 6-mle loop hike with less than 1000-foot elevation gain. Route will be Finley Rd, Highland Ridge Trail, Crestview Rd, Sulphur Spring Trail and Finley Rd to return to the trailhead. A short rest/snack stop will be taken at about the halfway point. No services available on the hike. We pass through Mt Diablo State Park, so it is not dog friendly. However, we have never seen a Ranger here.
