Let your inner Druid shine on a solstice hike in Mount Diablo State Park. Join us as we search for signs of the season, including mistletoe and Christmas berry (toyon).
Our trail passes beneath sturdy boughs of Coulter pines, renowned for possessing the heaviest cones of any pine tree. (We won't dawdle too long underneath!) To top off our hike, we'll enjoy great views from atop Twin Peaks.
A moderate hike of 6 miles, with 1,200 feet elevation gain.
