First time in the park. Did the four peak look: Eagle Peak, Mt. Diablo, North Peak, Mount Olympia.

I was impressed with how well signed the park was. As long as you have a trail map, it would be hard to get lost.

It was ridiculously hot. I drank 3 liters of water on the way to Mt. Diablo. I drank more there, refilled my water bottles, and finished another 3 liters on the way down. My keychain thermometer said 115 degrees F at one point. I don't trust the thermometer, but I'm pretty sure it was at least above 100. I had salt crystals all over my skin when I finally dried off. I could have filled a salt shaker.

jpmossymother's day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2005


Hiked up to Eagle Peak with my mom for mothers day. Very hot day but the bluebird skies and sun were enjoyable. We were joined by a big black tarantula walking down the trail on the way out to the car. There was also some sort of bike race on the mountain with a finish down at the parking lot

kavakAuto Mountaineering  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


Took some time off while visiting San Francisco to drive to the top. The road was long and meandering which required lots of concentration due to all the bikers making the ascent. So if I wanted to take in the view I stopped at a pullout. The bike riders are very aggressive as to ownership of the rode. At the summit parking lot we witnessed one poor tourist with his family in tow being openly berated for his driving skills by a group of bicyclists.

Hiked this all day with my Dad. Reached the summit then bagged the north peak on the way back down. We took the wide trail/road to the top and then the windy path down from the north peak. Next time would like to do it in reverse

Drove up then did a trail run loop that included North Peak and Devil's Pulpit. Smog obscured the views to the central valley.

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2008


Like most bay area denizens, I've hiked up this thing over and over. This time was special though - it's been exactly 6 months since my accident.

Started from Mitchell Canyon trailhead, went up Mitchell Rock trail to Eagle Peak. Then up Bald Ridge trail and then on a steep use trail to bypass the N. Peak trail. Descended loose class 2-3 choss off Devil's Pulpit to the N. Peak trail and most of the way up N. Peak road before deciding to call it a day and start down (fading daylight and calf muscles). Returned via Back Canyon & Coulter Pine trails. I'd guess it was about 14 miles / 4000' gain.

requiemTraining and learning  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 11, 2004


first visit was in a car to rock city then the summit about half a year before my first actual summit from Mitchell Canyon 'round my birthday. since then i've tried to go back every year... tried summiting from Mitchell Canyon to Twin Peaks and Eagle Peak once early September, and learned why it's called Devil Mountain! still have yet to see waterfalls and tarantulas, but have been startled witless coming up on a rattler! winter hiking just after a rain is awesome, if you can stand slogging through the mud awhile.
