With North Peak  Sucess!

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

from Mitchell Canyon TH  Sucess!

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.

Training and learning  Sucess!

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.

Back Creek Trail  Sucess!

Really enjoyed this route, as it offered a wide range of views, and wraps around the top of the mountain for views to the north then east, then south and finally west once up at the summit. Sierras were visible, as was the GG and Central Valley cities.

Leg Burner  Sucess!

Started at Mitchell Canyon TH at 8:20 with the fearsome 4. Crested Eagle Peak then proceeded to the summit, arrived at 10:50. Bunch of people on the summit oblivious to the fact that we hiked up from the very bottom. Left the summit at 11:20, and descended via the meridian Ridge Fire Road and connected with the Back Canyon creek trail and returned to the trailhead at 1:20. about 12 miles, was intense! Views were great.

Fun playground  Sucess!

Great mtn to bike and run and even a very few nice routes to climb - Amazing Face of course is a must do. Our 'local hill' for a couple good years in Cali.

An epic  Sucess!

Came here on a blustery rainy afternoon, but had a flat on the road up, so I changed the tire and descended to a tire shop to get a new one anyway, which put me off a couple hours. Came back late in the afternoon as the rainclouds came on. They said I could drive partway up, but the road was closed for the last mile or so, so I hiked a trail to the top. Turned out to be a great way to go. I had the summit entirely to myself (how many can say that for Diablo?), and it was kindof cool to be hiking the trails in cold misty dusk conditions. By the time I was back to my truck and descended off the mountain, it was dark.

Mitchell Canyon  Sucess!

This has the makings of a good Winter training ground. Twin Peaks, Eagle Peak, North Peak and the summit of Mt Diablo. Beautiful calm, cloud free day. Only saw a few other hikers the entire time out. With a BART station just a few minutes from here I was expecting to see oodles of people. This hike is worth doing.

Great Bay Area Peak  Sucess!

I have hiked, ran, biked this mountain many times. The view from the summit is incredible, considering the relatively low elevation. I always find more people on the summit than on the trails. Go on a weekday.

Mitchell Canyon, Eagle Trail, Deer Flat, Juniper Trail  Sucess!

Nice, somewhat steep climb to Eagle Peak then back down, then back up to reach Diablo. Made it to the summit just before the fog did. Beautiful day! Met Will & descended with him. Good times in Cali.

Mitchell Canyon Fireroad  Sucess!

This was a nice, chilly hike that took 4:45 from car to car. After getting to the top, I slowly jogged down with an adventure racer that I had met at the top. He is planning on attempting a speed record for a one-way traversal of the John Muir Trail this summer.
