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.

Lots of wildflowers, hummingbirds, falls flowing nicely.. Great hike, do it soon before falls dry up. Also, lots of fun sun/no shade hiking, will be brutal in late summer.

Really enjoyed this beautiful trail. The waterfalls are tiny but hearing the water as you walk is nice. We went really early so the heat was not an issue.

An excellent trail. It wasn't too long, and the waterfalls were amazing. I am glad I was able to do it this time of year. It wasn't too hot, nor was there any mud.
