Hike the Grand Loop Trail on Mt. Diablo

We will begin our adventure on Mt. Diablo with the classic Grand Loop trail.
We can listen to a 40-minute audio guide to a panoramic trail encircling one of the Bay Area's highest peaks downloaded to our phones. See the website for more details.

Park at the Diablo Valley Overlook on Summit Rd.

Difficulty: Moderate
Length: 6.2 miles / 10.0 km
Duration: Half day

Be sure to pack plenty of water, snack/lunch, binoculars, layers, and sun protection!
After the hike, we will be going to set up camp at Wildcat Group Camp on the South Gate Rd just below the junction. Please reply separately to that meet-up if you would like to join us for camping. Day hikers are welcome to hang out with us for a potluck BBQ, and join us for the Astronomy program, starting at 8:00 pm. in the lower summit parking lot. Note that you will need to exit after the Astronomy program through the North Gate.

Please indicate in your RSVP if you need or can provide a ride, and if so, where you are located or starting from.
