Up again via the same route as my earlier trip. Great views and a good time. Love the hills when they are green.
First climbed March 9, 2008
Took the trail from Mitchell Canyon, continued on to Mount Diablo and then North Peak before returning. Great loop this time of year.
Hiked in from Mitchell Canyon along the Mitchell Rock Trail. I also stopped by Twin Peak and Black Point on the return via Mitchell Canyon Trail. There was between 2" and 4" of snow from storms over the previous week which made for a beautiful scene. Fun day!
After going up Diablo via Mitchell Canyon, descended to the trailhead for Eagle. Far more interesting hike than going up Diablo.
Went with my wife today (2/27) and did Mitchell Canyon to Eagle then the Twin Peaks trail to the parking lot.
Completed as part of the 4 summit loop of Eagle, South, North, and Olympia. Due to wrong turns was 17.8 miles and took about 7:30. Weather was overcast with mist, but still drank over 4 liters of water. Great time!
20 mile car shuttle hike from Morgan Territory's Highland Ridge Trail (with 1/2 cars parked where it crosses Morgan Territory Road). Over 5000 ft. of elevation gained. Trails a bit muddy but highly enjoyable day long hike. See photos here: http://www.meetup.com/Wildcat-Adventure-Club/photos/506999/
Nice spot to have lunch .. usually I come up from Mitchell Canyon and continue on to the Bald Ridge trail.
Nice spring loop around Diablo State Park. Trip Report
Hiked over Eagle on a hike that tagged this, Devils Pulpit, and Diablo. Nice hike, a bay area classic.
From Mitchell and Donner Canyon. Great little hike!
