This is another hike that isn't feasible during the summer.
This is one of Mt. Diablo's premier hikes. The views are fantastic! As the name of the hike and the altitude gain suggests, there will be many ups and downs. I can only take fit hikers with me.
Here are the peaks we get to do (in order): Eagle Peak, Mt. Diablo Summit, North Peak, and Mt. Olympia.
Here is the link to a brochure and map of the State Park.

Come prepared to drive. Riders should donate $8. Please insist your driver accept the money. It's to cover more than gas money...it's the wear and tear on the vehicle. We like to take care of our drivers!
We combine enjoyment of the trail combined with respect for everyone’s time. A steady pace and we just keep going!
Please always check your email the night before just in case there are any necessary adjustments. This is especially important if there are any weather issues. Cancellations due to weather will be posted by 10pm the previous evening.
Give yourself time to find the trail head so that you arrive prior to the scheduled time. That is the time we head out on the trail. We do NOT wait. It would be disappointing to miss having you on the hike due to late arrival.
See you on the trail!
