3 hours to summit. 5 hours, 45 minutes out and back (including 30 minutes at the summit). Please Please do only clockwise, like many others have noted. Don't even know why AllTrails is suggesting counter-clockwise.

If you've done mission peak, this hike is comparable. Lots of exposed sections and gravel. There was a section near the top that was almost single-track, so no ability to social distance. There are water fountains at the peak, however the Summit visitor center was closed. The views are great and overall a worthwhile hike. Make sure you bring more water than you think you need if it's particularly hot. We brought 2 bottles, but I ended up re-filling the bottles twice at the Summit. Felt like I had partial heat exhaustion afterwards (felt a little nauseous). It was about 85-90 degrees on our hike and we started around 9 am.

Great views of Las Trampas and the 680 corridor from Wall Point ridge. Went counter clockwise. Took the 1/2 mile single track trail from live oak campground to wall point trail which goes under Sentinel Rock. Solid elevation gain in 7 miles. Consider hiking early morning or late evening in the summer

Good elevation variation. Shady creek trail half way through hike, single track 1/2 mile between Wall Point and BBQ terrace stage trails and eye popping views from wall point ridge of Trampas, Solano Napa Counties, Livermore Valley and Mt. Diablo. Go early in the day in the summertime. Great workout with trekking poles.

One of my regular training segments. Starting off it’s a gradual gain of elevation in the first 2 Miles followed by a a lot more gain. Good news is it makes for a fast decent. Usually takes me about 90 mins up and 55 mins down. Keep in mind it’s about 6.75 miles to the Summit and about 3300 elevation gain. So, if you are hiking and not running it will take about 2- 3 hrs to the Summit if you are able to maintain a 18-20 min pace . Start early as some spots are extremely exposed.

First to Review

So perfect for the return to mountain biking after a 6 year hiatus and new bike. Lots of options so didn’t stick to Finley the entire time. Wish I went earlier in the day to avoid the heat. It’s mostly exposed road without shade. Beautiful view at the top!

Go early in the day in the summer. Great trail for all abilities. A few tough hills. Beautiful trail in the flat shady part by the dry creeks.

It’s 3pm, fire road, almost 45 degree vertical climbing, it’s like wth. Had to literally frequent sparse tree shade every a few hundreds of feet to rest a bit. I did wear a hat, but that made me feel more heat trapped inside, and quite dizzy. I took the advice to take it in clockwise direction so to leave the summit and gorgeous view at the end. However, it turns out this is a hard way. The continuous elevation is 1500 feet vs the other direction 600 feet. What made it harder is there are three or more sections that are very steep. I used to wonder where I can find a trail that can just go straight up without much detour, guess this one is very close. The road condition is not very good, almost gravel and rocky all the way, with some part just a few feet width off the hill. While the up side is once you top the summit, the panoramic view is terrific, and there is a sense of achievement where people who drive up there probably won’t get. So my suggestion is to plan your hike in the early morning to avoid the sun burn, bring lots of water to keep hydrated, maybe also a climbing stick, and take it in the clockwise direction!

The views around the hike are amazing. at the same time, the "trail" is more of a fire road for well over 75% of this hike. The fire road is pretty steep in a fee sections and it is easy to lose your footing. I'd much prefer it to have been single track for the overall hiking experience.

Would highly recommend going clockwise-- the ridgeline trail is very narrow and steep with some loose rocks, and I wouldn't trust my ankles going down that. It was definitely nice to end on a gentler fire road grade. The trail is ~2/3 shaded, and we went on a day with some degree of cloud cover, but I would not advise going on a cloudless day during the summer. Overall, not a particularly special hike, but the elevation change alone offers some pretty great views. Plus, it's Mount Diablo-- you gotta go one time for the one time!
