Trail Maps

» Official Trail Map by SausalCreek.org: Great contoured map showing major trails on shaded relief. Mileage information of trail segments is missing. The map is also missing some unnamed trails that we encountered during our hike in Dec 2011. Still, the map is pretty good - we never felt lost.

» Official Trail Map by City of Oakland: Great map. However, contours are missing. Sausal Creek map is better.

» Trail Map from the book Guide to East Bay Creeks: Nice description of various landmarks along Sausal Creek and Dimond Park.

Route
Very well described in this article, Chapter 10 of the book Guide to East Bay Creeks (free online).

Photos

Dimond Canyon Trail. This trail is all along Sausal Creek. There is a section in the trail map marked as impassable in high water. We had to walk carefully next to the creek in this section.
