Annual Free Public Guided Hikes, Walks, and Tours
Save Mount Diablo’s Discover Diablo program offers an annual series of free guided public hikes, walks, and tours.
Join Save Mount Diablo in exploring the Bay Area’s beautiful wild lands and open spaces. Discover Diablo is a free public hike program that offers an annual schedule of guided interpretive family walks, hikes, and property tours open to any and all trailblazers looking to get out in nature.
Save Mount Diablo hosts one monthly property hike, taking place and focusing on a specific piece of land Save Mount Diablo owns and stewards, as well as one monthly family hike. Family hikes will take place on a collaborating agency’s land and will highlight ecologic features or a designated theme. We also offer a specialty series intended to build certain skill sets or grant access to SMD members exclusively, such as landscape photography field outings, bird watching expeditions, etc.
The goal of Discover Diablo is to build awareness of the land conservation movement and the importance of permanently protecting open space for habitat by increasing recognition of the inherent value of outdoor recreation as a means of connecting people with nature. Through this free public hikes program, we aim to reach new audiences, grow our membership base, and spark a passion for Diablo’s wild, natural lands in the youngest of trailblazers.
