On May 25th 2019 we completed hike #2 – Mount Umunhum. When we arrived at the trailhead parking lot, the lot was full and people were already waiting, and then even the lower parking lot was full. We were not sure whether we should turn around or not, because it was already late in the day. Eventually, we decided to not give up and park in a parking lot a little further away and hike up the street to the beginning of the trailhead since every other way would have taken way too long. It was pretty hot that day.
The hike was almost easy compared to our first hike up Mount Diablo. We got nice views from along the way where we occasionally enjoyed our snacks. When we finally reached the top of Mount Umunhum, we were rewarded with sunshine, wild flowers and a great view. The hike back down was pretty relaxed and, just as last time, we treated ourselves with a dinner at the nearest Cheesecake Factory.
