Wonderful Wildflowers

April 14 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

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

Join us on the southern side of Mount Diablo to see some of the unique, beautiful flowers, some of which are only found on Mount Diablo itself and nowhere else in the world. We’ll be going from Devil’s Elbow to Prospector Gap.

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

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

***There will be a $10 park entrance fee  (exact change; iron ranger/no attendant)

This hike is limited to 10 participants.

 Are dogs allowed on Discover Diablo hikes?

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 reach out to discoverdiablo@savemountdiablo.org.
