Ascent Trip Report

We parked in the main parking lot and followed the Diablo View trail until the three way split, where we took the middle unnamed trail up over the hill. Ate lunch at the summit and watched a Hawk flying around. Took the Tabletop trail down to the Spengler trail and back to the car. Saw maybe 10 other hikers/runners and a few Dogs. Views were spectacular as always.
