East Bay: Summer Solstice Saunter
It’s summertime and the “living is easy”— the perfect time for an evening hike on Mount Diablo.
Our soiree begins at Coulter Pond, where we’ll look for toads and frogs. Then, as the sun sets, we’ll hike up Mitchell Canyon to check out the park’s evening shift, including poor-wills, bats, owls, and scorpions.
Based on that guidance, our small group outdoor hikes will continue this week. However, we ask that participants and leaders follow recommended public health guidelines and social distancing protocols to stay safe. View our protocols here.

We’ll assemble at the Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center in Mount Diablo State Park.
Bring liquids, snacks, and flashlight. Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. Restrooms and water are available near the trailhead. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321.
