A walk along the wall

A two month long hiatus from the trail ended with a trip to the southern slopes of Mount Diablo for a hike along Wall Point Trail.

The 8.83 mile hike climbs the rock trail to the the mountain’s Summit Trail. Turning away from the summit the path descends through Pine Canyon along Barbecue Terrace Road before a final climb back to the trailhead.

Scattered clouds greeted me on the trail making for a humid hike but the view was worth it.
