Toyon Canyon at Briones Regional Park

Native plant expert Gregg Weber leads this trip to a floristically rich area of
Briones Regional Park. Toyon canyon trail descends 300
feet, to the creek, and a 300 foot elev gain follows.
We will see unusual plants such as Western viburnum, bent-flowered fiddleneck,

tufted poppy, Mount Diablo sunflower, and Eucrypta, plus many more familiar plants such as silver leaf bush lupine, coyote mint, Mules ears, pipe stems, hop tree, dutchmans pipe, and osoberry.
We will return to the cars at about 3pm.

Directions: From west of the Bay hills, go east on 24 and exit
at Pleasant Hill Road. Go north on Pleasant Hill Road 0.5 mile
and then turn left onto Reliez Valley Road. Go 4-5 miles on
Reliez Valley Road to its end at the junction with Alhambra
Valley Road. Ignore the entrance signs on Reliez Valley Road
and continue straight on Alhambra Valley Road to the first
left turn, which is Briones Road. Go about 1.5 miles to the end
of Briones Road and park on either side of the road. For the
Pinole/Martinez area, just proceed down Alhambra Valley
Road and follow the directions to the end of Briones Road.
