Monday, May 16, 2022

Ray Mengel

9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Location:

Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center

96 Mitchell Canyon Road, Clayton, CA

Description:

We will ascend past Mitchell Rock, through a lovely wildflower garden, until just below Twin Peaks (elev. 1733) where we'll linger to enjoy outstanding views of Back Canyon, North Peak and the summit of Diablo. After following the spiny ridge separating Back and Mitchell Canyons for a short bit, we'll descend (rather steeply at times) as we take the Eagle Peak Trail to the lowlands far below. From there, the Coulter Pine Trail will take us back to the trailhead. A 3.8 moderate loop with an elevation gain of 1200 feet. Relaxed flower - sniffing pace.
