Spring Wildflower Walk

Celebrate Earth Day with a beautiful hike and spring wildflowers! We will start at a beautiful creekside shelter with coffee, tea and Tyler and Alma's homemade pastries, and then explore the Donner Canyon and Back Canyon trails on the mountain.

A trained naturalist, Tyler will open your eyes to the complex beauty of our area. This trail is a real gem of Mt. Diablo State Park and passes through many distinct biotic zones. It takes place in mid-April when the wildflowers should be at their peak. We will experience a great deal of beauty, learn an ecological view of the relationship between plants, animals and geology, as well as explore some of the plant uses of the Native Americans.

The approximately three-hour hike features moderate up and downhill portions and one short, very steep part. Kids are ok, but the walk is not ideal for younger children.
