Beautiful hike along a riparian trail up to a ridge hike with views of Mount Diablo. We hiked to Carson Falls from where the Liberty trail intersects the Oat Hill fire road. The segment to Carson Falls was marked clearly and was short (less than 1.0 miles). The hike has steep inclines so you get your workout but it is well worth it. I should note that the Liberty trail is itself unmarked but its well worn and easy to follow to Oat Hill fire road where there are a number of well marked trail heads and intersections.
