    Hi Annamarie!

    You can hike the peaks from any trail, but the key is that it should be a challenge for YOU!

    Some of the peaks (Mt Tam, Diablo, and Mt Umunhum) have roads that could be driven to the top. Obviously that would not count.

    If you have another route up any of the peaks that is challenging for you, we allow it.

    The routes we link to are our recommendations. Some people find ways to make them even harder! Others take a route that may be about the same or even a little easier (but still challenging for them).

    Because it’s a personal challenge and not a race, we trust our challengers honor and integrity.
