About a 6- to 7-mile loop hike with a 1600-foot elevation gain from Regency gate to Murchio Gap. The route is via Back Creek Rd and Back Creek trail to Murchio Gap, where we will take a short rest/snack break. Return via Ridge Rd and Donner Canyon Rd to Regency. Shorter loops may be hiked by turning off from the Back Creek Trail onto either the Tickwood (3+ miles, 600 feet) or Meridian Point (4+ miles, 600 feet) trails. There are no facilities available on this hike, so bring adequate water and snacks. Dogs are not allowed in Mt Diablo State Park.Contact: Howard
