Description: From Curry Point we’ll hike down to Rock City before descending into leafy Sycamore Canyon. Then we’ll ascend Black Hawk Ridge for magnificent views of Diablo and North Peak before making our way to the Knobcone Point area and intriguing Balancing Rock. From there we head back to our trailhead along a ridge with expansive views of Curry Canyon. Wildflowers should be abundant. Allow 6 hours for this 8.5 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 1600 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.
