Beautiful Black Diamond
An outing that includes a historic cemetery, ancient fossils, geological wonders, a ghost town, and one of the Bay Area’s best wildflower displays. Who could ask for more?
Join Karen Synowiec to explore the Chaparral Loop, Coal Canyon, Nortonville, and Rosehill Cemetery. The natural landscape immediately to the east of this beautiful park is at high risk of development. Check out our new At Risk Report.
