Hope you are all enjoying the warm summer weather. This Sunday the tempartures will be warm, so bring plenty of water!

This weekend we return to Mount Diablo State Park, but this time we will venture from the other side of the hill -- the Danville side -- as we trek up to Rock City.

Due to limited parking spaces at the trailhead, let's meet at the Athenian School parking lot (corner of Diablo Rd. and Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd) and then carpool from there to the trailhead parking area.

The Athenian School is located at 2100 Mount Diablo Scenic Blvd in Danville. Directions: From Highway 680, exit at El Cerro Road and go east. It will merge into Diablo Road. Continue east past the Green Valley School and past the fire station. Continue on the two-lane road past the Diablo Country Club. Proceed to the stop sign. Turn left onto Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd. Turn right into the first driveway.

If you get lost or are running late, call me on my cell -- 925-457-7717. Plan 2 - 3 hours to complete this hike round trip.

See you Sunday!

Happy Trails,
