Notes: Water is available at Rheem Reservoir, at approximately the half way mark along the hike (see trail map). The hiking route goes up and down along hills throughout. A few of these hills are exceptionally steep. In June 2010, we had to walk really slowly down such hills to avoid slippage.
From CA-24 East, take exit 11 for Acalanes Rd/Mt Diablo Blvd toward Upper Happy Valley Rd. Keep right at the fork, follow signs for Acalanes Road / Mount Diablo Boulevard and merge onto Mt Diablo Blvd. Within 1.1 miles, Lafayette Recreation Area is on the right.
Parking Fees: $6 per vehicle (last visited: June 2010)
Capacity: Dozens of cars may be parked inside the park.
