Meet in front of Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center at end of Mitchell Canyon Road.


Enjoy wildflowers and water on the rugged north side of Mount Diablo. Our route will take us up Back Canyon, over Meridian Ridge and then swing around the falls and cataracts at the base of North Peak. We will return via a series of trails to lovely lower Donner Canyon. Allow 7 hours for this 8.5-mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 1800 feet. This hike has a steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Bring layered clothing, hiking shoes, lunch and water. Be prepared for poison oak. Any rain cancels.
