Wright Canyon Family Walk
Sun, October 22, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Discover Save Mount Diablo’s Wright Canyon Property, just off Morgan Territory Road on the east side of the mountain. We acquired the property from friend and SMD ambassador, Dorothy Wright, in 2002 with life estate so she could live out the remainder of her life on the ranch.
Come see the beautiful property she helped us protect, hike past llamas next door, and visit the Gathering Place which offer grand views of Curry Canyon and the peaks of Mt Diablo. This outing is mostly shaded Oak woodland some short steep sections. Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a snack. Heavy rain cancels.
