Trail shared by Mike Anciaux

The a great trail through Mount Diablo State Park.

Features Views

You really are out in the middle of nowhere. Bring enough water and first aid equipment. Also, the trail can be quite rutted from bikers some years.

Description

This is a little more rugged singletrack, especially considering how much work it is to get there. But it's totally worth the effort!

The first half of the trail is mostly climbing on the side of a steep hill that parallels a creek. It's curvy, narrow and exposed.

The second 1/2 is continuous and well graded downhill (there are some steep sections). Again, it is narrow, curvy and exposed as it traverses steeply down into Jackass Canyon.

The trail ends at Finley Rd. To return on paved roads, turn right on Finley Rd. It starts as dirt but turns paved at the park entrance. Continue down Finley Rd to Camino Tassaraja Rd.
