Features: Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Family Friendly: There is a bit of an incline up to the summit, but the trail is easy to follow.
This trail is very well marked and can be connected to by the Prospector's Gap Fire Road
. This trail felt completely different from the fire roads we were taking the rest of our hike. It is a singletrack through some trees and up and out along the side of the peak.
The North Peak Trail
can connect to Summit Trail
which will lead you directly to the summit or to Summit Road which will lead you to Juniper Trail. Enjoy the beautiful views of the east side of Mount Diablo!
There are supposedly tarantulas along the trail when you come out of the trees and are hiking along the brush. So be aware during their mating seasons.
