Irish Canyon Property Hike (SMD)

June 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation


Join Save Mount Diablo (SMD) for an exclusive guided tour of the spectacular 320-acre Irish Canyon property. The property is marked by three spring-fed branches of Irish Creek, blue oak woodland covers northeast facing slopes and valley oak savannah and grassland climb toward Kreiger Peak. Steep slopes are sculpted by landslide slumps. The property supports more than 400 species of plants and animals, provides world class views very few living people have seen, and has a rich history including two homestead sites. The hike is roughly 5 miles round trip with 900ft elevation gain/loss. No dogs allowed. Wear sturdy running shoes or hiking boots. Dress in layers, bring plenty of water and snacks. ***Depending on the heat and energy level of the group, the hike could potentially be cut short.
