The Waterfalls of Mount Diablo Loop Trail is great for scenic views of Mount Diablo and beautiful seasonal waterfalls that wind through the mountain canyons.

Winter and spring rains create scenic waterfalls in this hike at Mount Diablo, the East Bay's signature peak. Be careful hiking immediately post-rain, watch for slippery sections of mud. The trail is moderately difficult and is used by hikers, walking groups, trail runners, and for nature trips. 

This hike starts out from the Regency Gate in the East Bay town of Clayton. Park on the street and be respectful of the neighborhood!

This 6 mile loop trail does not allow dogs.
