Great trail that's a little challenging for most but well worth it... Mt Diablo is awesome.

Great trail! We clearly strayed from the beaten path and added on a few miles, but it was definently worth it! It’s not an easy hike, there we’re some rough up and down hills going to and from the top where the picnic benches are. That said, the normal route can be accomplished by anyone in decent shape! The views are great, happy hiking :)

Good trail, not too hard but coming over Eagle Peak trail it is loose footing the last 2-3 miles in a lot of places so be cautious. Gentle upward climb with a few steeper places but the descent areas on Eagle Peak are the tricky ones with loose shale and rocks. Cooler day so windy but nice. Being from the south east I enjoyed the trees on this trail that are often lacking in this area of California on hikes I have taken. May try a spur that does not go over Eagle Peak if anyone can recommend one that returns to parking lot. Took 3 hours with the slowdown on slip-slide descent lol
