The Morning Side of Mt. Diablo from Morgan Territory

November 5 @ 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.

We’ll hike Bob Walker Ridge through native Blue Oak forests and enjoy a closeup view of the eastern side of Mt Diablo from the cliffs where Prairie Falcons nest in the spring. The first half of the hike will be relatively flat, with some narrow single track, followed by gentle rolling hills back to the trailhead. If there is significant rainfall in the days before the hike, expect very muddy conditions. Plenty of free parking and bathrooms at the trailhead.

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

Restrooms are available at the parking lot.

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

This hike is limited to 20 participants.
