Description: We’ll climb up to Twin Peaks via the magnificent but at times steep(with loose rock) Eagle Peak Trail and return via the Mitchell Rock Trail which should have abundant wildflowers at this time of the year. This hike also features outstanding views of Mitchell and Back Canyons, North Peak and Diablo’s summit. Allow 4 hours for this 4.5 mile hike with a total elevation gain of about 1200 feet. Relaxed, flower-sniffing pace with a lunch break. Bring layered clothing and plenty of water. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Rain cancels.
