Juniper Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The loop explores the summit and upper slopes of Mount Diablo, passing through several different habitats and interesting geological features along the way. The north side of the mountain burned in a 1977 forest fire but is recovering nicely. And although the summit is only 3,849 feet high, fans claim you can see more of the Earth’s surface from here than from any other peak in North America. On a clear day, you can even make out Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, over 130 miles to the east. Terrain: Dirt path and dirt, gravel, and paved roads through oak- and chaparral-covered hillsides."
