North Peak Ranch is located on Marsh Creek Road and rises to North Peak and the border to Mount Diablo State Park. It is near Save Mount Diablo’s Young Canyon property and is heavily wooded with fire roads through blue oak woodland. Its serpentine mineral soils support rare plants, and the rare Alameda whipsnake is almost certainly present on the site.
