Be Among the Few to Experience This Unique Trip

Four Days Diablo is a “gently roughing it” camping trip that leads you on an adventure through rarely seen Mount Diablo landscapes, including Save Mount Diablo’s very own signature 1,083-acre property and field station, Curry Canyon Ranch. The most luxurious camping experience filled with discovery awaits you closer to home than you ever thought. This route follows the 31-mile Diablo Trail across a patchwork of six regional parks and preserves linking from Walnut Creek to Brentwood. Each day as you tour and examine the majestic wild lands, staff hauls your gear and sets up your new camp while talented local chefs, from restaurants like Postino, create delectable dishes on the spot.

Your day pack will seem light as you learn about the natural and human history that you will encounter on each day of the hike. When you stroll into camp for the evening, you’re met with cool drinks and, after sunset, a sumptuous dinner catered by premiere East Bay restaurants. After dinner, local experts will tell stories about your journey—the spectacular scenery, the natural and cultural history.

Picture sparkling streams flowing down canyons below spectacular mountain peaks, a castle of rocks across the way. As you leave civilization behind, you notice eagles and falcons flying above a western box canyon riddled with hundreds of caves, wildflower meadows, and dense woodland views uninterrupted for many miles. With brilliant sun above and cloud-filled valleys below, a snow-covered range shines in the distance.

Given that more than 7 million people live in the Bay Area and that we’ll be located within an hour’s drive to a major metropolis, you’ll hardly believe our path will cross only two paved roads during our escape to this natural wonderland. Come get lost in nature with us, right here in our own backyard.
