Description

The Maguire Peak Loop Trail is accessed through Welch Creek Road. Start from Maguire Peak Trail, in approximately 1.2 miles you'll see the trail marker for Maguire Peak Loop Trail.

We prefer to start the trail from the right of the loop because it gives two advantages: the return has more shade and is mostly downhill.

The halfway point is marked by the Maguire Peak "bench". From here you can get a wonderful view of Mission Peak, Niles Canyon, Pleasanton Ridge, Mount Diablo, and more. Continue on Maguire Peak Loop Trail for a downhill return or include 0.2 miles of Maguire Summit Trail to reach Maguire Peak. I have always gone to the peak, because the splendid views of the surrounding peaks are worth it.
