Event description

Description

It’s summertime and the “living is easy”— the perfect time for an evening hike on Mount Diablo.

Our soiree begins at Coulter Pond, where we’ll look for toads and frogs. Then, as the sun sets, we’ll hike up Mitchell Canyon to check out the park’s evening shift, including poor-wills, bats, owls, and scorpions.

TOTAL DISTANCE
This is a moderate hike of about four miles round trip with a few hundred feet in elevation gain.

LEADER
Liz Watson

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

COST
$6 per vehicle park entrance fee (exact change required).

WHERE TO MEET
We’ll assemble at the Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center in Mount Diablo State Park.

NOTES
Bring liquids, snacks, and flashlight. Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. Restrooms and water are available near the trailhead. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321.
