Three Canyons Hike

Description: Avoid the mall crowds this Black Friday and enjoy instead a Green Friday autumnal outing on the north side of Mt. Diablo. From Mitchell Canyon we’ll wend our way to Back Canyon and then Donner Canyon as we look for signs of seasonal changes to the landscape brought on by recent rains and cooler temperatures. Allow 7 hours for this 9 mile hike with 2100 feet elevation gain. Steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Bring layered clothing and plenty of water. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Rain cancels.
