Enjoy this 3 mile hike that starts across from privately owned Diablo Ranch and proceeds up Diablo Ranch Road to Angel Kerley Road to a spectacular view of Las Trampas and Pleasanton Ridge. We will cross a few ravines which might have rushing water depending on rainfall. Cayotes frequent this area so be on the lookout as we pass through fragrant bay laurel, chaparral and beautiful rock outcroppings. Be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots recommended. Heavy rain cancels.
