Mt Diablo: Regency Drive Waterfall Hike
City: Walnut Creek
Date: Sunday, January 31st Hike
The new date for the January hike has been set. We have changed the intention of the hike to visiting the waterfalls while the rains are still feeding them. I scouted out the falls earlier in the week and while it was muddy, the falls were beautiful.
If it is muddy the day of the hike, walking sticks are recommended.
The meet up time will be 9:30am and the hike will begin at 9:45am.
Board Member-at-Large Craig Toonder is coordinating this event.
