Mitchell Canyon Wildflower Hike

This event has expired and is here for your reference.

202223Apr

All Discover Diablo hikes are subject to, and will honor, all applicable COVID-19–related restrictions in place for our area.

Enjoy a leisurely loop as we hike up Mitchell Canyon to Black Point Trail. Excite your eyes with vivid colors of wildflowers as we gradually climb to vista points within the state park. This route follows Mitchell Creek, bringing to life a well-established riparian ecosystem. Also, see a chaparral ecosystem—one that covers a large part of Mount Diablo as well as California.


***There will be a $6 park entrance fee (exact change; iron ranger/no attendant)

Be sure to bring a mask, plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Heavy rain cancels.

Restrooms are available in the parking lot.

Participants will be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration).
