Black Diamond Mines Halloween Hike

October 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

All Discover Diablo hikes are subject to, and will honor, all applicable COVID-19–related restrictions in place for our area.

Come celebrate Halloween on the trails of Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve — costumes are optional but encouraged! Our route takes us to the old Rose Hill Cemetery and beyond; among the rocks and vegetation, look for signs of the mining activities that occurred here more than 100 years ago.

Be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Heavy rain cancels.

***There will be a $5 park entrance fee (exact change required)

This hike is limited to 25 participants.

Participants will also be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration).

 Are dogs allowed on Discover Diablo hikes?

No. Some Discover Diablo hikes take place on land owned by other organizations (such as Mount Diablo State Park & East Bay Regional Park lands) and many of the trails on these properties have a strict no-dog policy. 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. On the hike day, we will have a roster with your registration information on it. Please make sure to check in with the hike leader.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes. If you would like to change anything, please contact Denise Castro at dcastro@savemountdiablo.org
