A great hike

‘Spring loaded’:
Offering one of the biggest views in the West — an eye-candy panorama that includes more than 200 miles of California landscape — the Grand Loop on Mount Diablo should be on your to-do list this spring. But the 6½-mile trek around the East Bay’s tallest peak also is a real thigh-burner with substantial uphill stretches, so bring lots of water — and energy.
