I am going to explore more of Mt. Diablo this Friday morning. 10:30 ish! I'll probably either enter through Macedo Ranch staging area, or through South Gate and go to the summit. Laid back slack ride!

I am off on Friday, so I could join you on a ride. Have you been on the North Peak trail? If you are interested we could plan something.

North Peak? If my memory is correct that's near "Devil's Elbow?" I haven't been on that side and explored yet. Perfect! Thanks VTT!

My early morning priority is to start/finish my Christmas shopping. I'll start at 8:00 am, and should be done by 9:15 or so. Is 10:00, or 10:15 too late for you? It'll be warmer at that time too. If you're ok with the start time; where's the best place to meet?

I was there yesterday with EBrider and it was cold in the shade of Diablo when we began our way down. The North Peak trail starts at Devil's Elbow and we leave from the Mountaire Parkway in Clayton. It's about 2 hours of mostly climbing to Devil's Elbow. Or we could meet at the Mitchel Canyon trailhead if it's easier for you to find. Let's say 10:30 am ?

I'll meet you where you think is the better starting/finishing place. 10:30 it is!

I may be there too.
I wasn't planning on riding Friday but I will blame this one on Larry for this thread. I could meet you at the Mountaire Gate at 10:10 am and ride to Mitchell Canyon to pick up Larry for our weekly dose of suffering.

Take Ygnacio Valley Road towards Concord.
Drive for a few miles 5-6 ? (go over a big hill), until the intersection with Clayton Road
Take a right on Clayton Road, go through a few lights to Mitchell Canyon Road
Take a right, keep driving until the road ends, and you will arrive at the Mt Diablo entrance
I will ride from another gate to the trailhead on a red Turner. 10:30 am.

I am terrible at directions, you may want to check Mapquest

Those are perfect directions VTT - that's what maps.google say.

Cool - see everyone in the morning!

I will shoot straight for Mitchell Canyon. Only adds about ten minutes from my house and it is a little bit of an early start. So see you at Mitchell Canyon at 10:30.
