Description: Enjoy wildflowers and water on the rugged north side of Mount Diablo. Our route will take us up Back Canyon, over Meridian Ridge and then swing around the falls and cataracts at the base of North Peak. We’ll return via a series of trails to lovely lower Donner Canyon. Allow 7 hours for this 9 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 2100 feet. Bring layered clothing and plenty of water. Steady relaxed pace with a 30-minute lunch and other rest breaks. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Rain cancels.
