"Event: Hike and Bike day at Mt. Diablo Date: 12/12/2020 ( Day event) Time: 9:30 to 3:30 PM

Posted on Nov 29 2020 - 9:35pm

Event Details:

Sign up for the Hike and Bike day event at Mt. Diablo.
The scouts have the option of both, the Hiking and Biking event, Or the Hike-only option.

Everyone starts the hike at the beginning of the Summit Trail, on Diablo Lakes Ln, Danville, at 9:30 AM, on Saturday, December 12th.

The participants hike on Summit trail, through Rock City, to Juniper campground.

The troop arrives at the Juniper campground by 12:30 PM.

Scouts will eat lunch and spend 60 minutes at the Juniper campground.

Luis's Mom drives a truck and brings the mountain bikes to the Juniper campground and participants (Scouts and Parents) will bike down on the Summit trails to the starting point.

Luis's Mom will help to return the bikes.


Important notification: Mountain Bikes should be adequate for Mt. Diablo dirt trails. I highly recommend not to use your own bikes. We had an accident last year with a personal bike.

Instead, rent a Mountain bike at Walnut Creek's bike shops. Make your reservation at least 10 days prior to the event to secure your bike availability.
