Four ten acre parcels under threat of development for more than twenty years were protected by Save Mount Diablo in 2010; join us on a guided tour to learn about this acquisition which we’re calling Oak Hill. Located on the slopes of North Peak less than a ¼ mile from SMD’s Viera-North Peak and Wright Canyon, the property rises from 960’ to 1240’ and supports a diversity of habitat types. A steep ravine cuts through the center of the property and is flanked by a locally rare blue oak/narrowleaf goldenbush – juniper plant association. Chaparral rises from Wright Canyon onto the property across the Mount Diablo Meridian (Oak Hill’s southern boundary) providing habitat for rare flora and fauna. The hike is a short 2 miles with some cross country and short steeper sections, a total of 280’ elevation gain/loss.
