Join us on this Audubon hike along Curry Creek. This portion of Curry Canyon Ranch showcases beautiful rangeland ecosystems and valley oak and riparian habitat. You might even see a golden eagle or two as well. This is a chance to get to know the east side of Mount Diablo, a side thatâ€™s not normally open to the public. Youâ€™ll pass a beautiful valley with rolling hills as you walk along the creek, then transition into riparian habitat, where sun hardly breaks through the canopy of the trees. Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and a snack.
RVSP:Â To allow everyone equal access in signing up, registration for this hike will open two months prior to the hike.
