Mount Diablo State Park and It's surrounding area! Nested in the outskirts of the San Francisco's East Bay. It's one of the most important wildlife corridors, cultural and ecological treasures of the San Francisco Bay Area. Every season in the park has its special qualities. Discover them for yourself, from the mountain's 3,849-foot summit to its beautiful wildflowers that only exist in the park, extensive trail systems, fascinating wildlife, and distinctive rock formations. The 4 - 5+hours hike consists of 6 - 8 miles hiking through some of the most beautiful and diverse areas in the park and It's surroundings. First of all we will drive to the summit, which is a must because of it's breathtaking views, and then we will drive to the trailhead.. History According to Native American folklore, at the dawn of time, Tuyshtak (today's Mount Diablo) was the sacred birthplace of the world. Supernatural beings, the First People, lived here. The First People are often designated with the names of the animals whose attributes are reflected in their personalities-animals such as Condor (Mollock), Prairie Falcon, Eagle and Coyote. These personages created Native Americans, and provided them with a bountiful, beautiful world. Native Americans Morgan Territory is located within the traditional homeland of the Volvon, one of five Native American nations in the Diablo area who spoke dialects of the Bay Miwuk language. Their way of life was characterized by a rich heritage of social, political, economic and religious tradition--tradition built upon thousands of years of living with the land, during which new ideas, technologies and Indian groups came into the area. Their world changed dramatically after 1772, when the Spanish began to explore the East Bay. Diseases of European origin killed large numbers of people at the crowded, unsanitary missions, while Spanish military expeditions killed others. The Volvon were among the Native American groups who resisted Spanish missionization, but by 1806 the resistance had crumbled. The destruction of the old way of life was completed during the early years of American settlement. *The hike location and time can be customized to meet your time frame upon request!

I'm an avid hiker and mtn biker. Also an amateur astronomer, naturalist, forager and anthropologist! I was born in Central America and since I remember I have always been fascinated by the Natural World! In 1981 I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I've lived for 35yrs. I will never forget the first time I saw Mt Diablo majestically standing alone, tall and proud in the inner valleys of the East Bay. Located on the Eastern side of the Oakland and Berkeley Hills.. Since then I have been exploring Mt Diablo and it's surrounding hills, wildlife corridors, peaks, caves, rocks, animal trails, etc! On foot and mtn bike for over 20yrs. One of my hobbies is looking for signs of the ancient civilizations that not long ago thrived here for over 10,000yrs. I use most of my free time to keep educating my self, researching, taking classes, learning about edible plants, survival skills and exploring the area!
