Winter and spring rains create scenic waterfalls in this hike at Mount Diablo, the East Bay's signature peak. While Mount Diablo State Park is best known for towering vistas from the mountain's twin East Bay summits, the seasonal rains that visit the San Francisco Bay Area every year create several scenic waterfalls in the mountain's rugged canyons. This hike starts out from the Regency Gate in the East Bay town of Clayton -- parking is free in the neighborhood: be polite and do not abuse the privilege.

Strenuous to say the least but the views are worth it! If my 9 year old niece could do it, so can you!

Great trail! It's a very moderate hike. It took us 3.5 hours to finish it with kids. Views are beautiful! Will do again.

Nice hike. Definitely need a good pair of waterproof hiking shoe. Hiking pole will be useful for this trail. There is NO bathroom. Minus one star for that.

Great hike! Some spots were muddy but easily passable. Be prepared to walk through water or jump over creeks. Some areas are narrow and the downhill part is pretty slippery with not much to grab onto. Bring water. Took us 3.5 hours at a leisurely pace with photo breaks.
