Hit the Trails – Mountain Biking
October 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
AGE REQUIREMENT: 12+ years old
Come explore the beautiful trails from Smith Canyon into Mount Diablo’s beautiful Curry Canyon via mountain bike. Enjoy beautiful trails, gorgeous views, and the feeling of wildness as we travel alone in this beautiful preserve.
Because of the very serious environmental issues like the climate crisis and mass species extinction event underway, we at Save Mount Diablo have been trying to respectfully reach more groups of people and invite them into our conservation tent so that we can build more momentum, and appreciation, for conservation. We desperately need more types of people on the side of conservation, not less. For example, with our free Discover Diablo educational outings program, we have added rock climbing, mountain biking, and bilingual hikes this year so as to invite more outdoor user groups, different peoples and ethnic groups in to be educated about conservation and join our conservation team. Nature needs us all now!
Bring a mask, snacks, water, a well-functioning mountain bike, and your bike helmet.
Heavy rain cancels.
Participants will be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration).
