Trailhead:  MOUNT DIABLO STATE PARK, MACEDO RANCH STAGING AREA  For map and brochure go to Mt  Diable website.

Depart at 9:00 AM from the Macedo Ranch Staging Area in Danville.  The staging area is about 30 minutes from Oakland. Take Highway 24 to Highway 680 southbound; exit Highway 680 at Stone Valley Road; follow Stone Valley Road in the direction of Mt. Diablo; turn left off of Stone Valley Road onto Green Valley Road; Green Valley Road dead-ends at the Macedo Ranch Staging Area.

Sorry: no dogs allowed on trail.

Degree of difficulty:  This will be a moderate hike, covering 3.8 miles in 2.5 hours, on the southwestern flank of Mt. Diablo.  From the Macedo Ranch Staging area, we will walk to the Stage Road (constructed in 1874 to accommodate tourists from Walnut Creek); at the western boundary of the State Park, we will double back on the Little Yosemite Trail (NB: while this “Little Yosemite” has its charms, it is even less impressive that the “Little Yosemite” that we visited in Sunol Regional Park last year). 

Dogs?:  Sorry -- no dogs allowed on this trail.
