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.

Enjoyable hike. Some very steep descents. Quite an elevation gain as well. Would say more hard than moderate. Would recommend starting early because of heat and parking and going clockwise.
