Join MT Sobek and our friends at The Outbound Collective on May 19, 2018, for a free urban walking adventure through San Francisco's city streets. We will climb seven summits, ascending to take in some of the finest city views from Twin Peaks and Mount Olympus (once viewed as the geographic center of the city), and journey along the flanks of Mount Parnassus. Along the way, we'll stroll through areas of history, art and hidden mystery that are part of San Francisco's landscape.

Mount Diablo Wildflower Hike with MT Sobek and The Outbound Collective

February 20, 2018 by John Baston

Gear up for a stunning Mount Diablo hike on Saturday April 21, 2018, offered in collaboration with our friends at The Outbound Collective! From the lush meadows of Mitchell Canyon we'll hike a less-traversed 8 mile loop trail on the mountain's north side. Our path rises up into the chaparral and offers hikers a chance to summit one of Mount Diablo State Park's roadless peaks, and enjoy iconic views of the Bay Area. We've also chosen this hike to coincide with the area’s peak wildflower bloom, so be sure to bring along your camera!
