NORDIC WALKING IN MOUNT DIABLO

Stand alone on the edge of California’s great Central Valley

At the eastern fringe of the San Francisco Bay Region, Mount Diablo, (elevation 3,849 feet), stands alone on the edge of California’s great Central Valley.

 

We organize a beautiful 10-miles hike to the top. At this point, the Coast Range consists only of low hills, none high enough to block the view from the upper slopes of the mountain.

 

The trail goes up to the top, turns around the mountain for two and half hours, and as a result, the views are spectacular. There, you can look to the west, beyond the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Farallon Islands; southeast to the James Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton at 4,213 feet elevation; south to Mount Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 3,791 feet elevation; north to Mount Saint Helena in the Coast Range at 4,344 feet, and still farther north to Mount Lassen in the Cascades at 10,466 feet.
