Perkins Canyon Family Hike
Escape all your stress and heavy workload by hiking through Mount Diablo State Park! Now’s the chance to surround yourself with beautiful nature and scenery while also learning more about Mount Diablo’s treasures at the Perkins Family Hike!
Nowadays, everyone is obsessed with their phone and fail to appreciate even the simplest gifts of Mother Nature. Luckily, we are fortunate enough to be surrounded by the beautiful mountains and hills near the Livermore Valley. So why not take a day off and go for a 3 mile hike?! Never gone hiking? No worries! You will be accompanied by a hike leader who will guide you and even share interesting facts about Mount Diablo’s geology, plants and mercury mining!
This hike is especially important because it supports the Save Mount Diablo cause. Once venturing into The Perkins Canyon Family Hike in Mount Diablo, you’ll be very shocked to learn that only half of its wilderness is protected! This cause aims to preserve and protect this local environment from further development or harmful activities to the ecosystems and species within it.
This “easy” ranked hike will provide you with gorgeous views, rare plants and its amazing creek. This hike will take place on October 29th, 2016 at 9 am, so spare that Saturday to go with friends and family on a fun hike! I encourage you all to learn more about it and how you can be a part of saving Mount Diablo by visiting their website!

Remind yourself of the nature you’re lucky to be surrounded by and go hiking! Be sure to bring your selfie stick if you and your friends want to capture a fun group picture for Facebook or Instagram!
