Finley Road , Morgan Territory
Submitted by - Jim Woollett
This is a Morgan Territory hike, with the trailhead beginning at the end of Finley Road . The location is on the South side of Mt. Diablo , just off of Camino Tassajara, which originates in Danville . Take 680 South to Sycamore Valley Road ; go east 6 miles to Finley Road . Left turn, go through town. Parking is .50 mi before trailhead, so park on right side of road, under Oak trees.
The first part of the hike is up a canyon, through a beautiful streamside trail (dry, mostly, in summer). The Sulphur Springs Trail winds up through open space, and then down into another canyon and proceeds up through the side of the canyon to a ridge, we turn onto Black Hills Trail and then Sulphur Springs Trail, completing the loop. There will be a combination of sun and shade, a total of approximately 6-7 miles. Round trip by auto 35 miles and return to Rossmoor by about 2:00 PM.
