Great alternative to Black Diamond Regional Park due to the abundant shade and cooler weather conditions. Rode with a friend yesterday when temp was 105 in Antioch, it was about mid 90's at Shell Ridge but with the shade, breeze and water from the creek beds you get to blast through, it felt much cooler. Take plenty of water to stay hydrated though. Plan on going back this week and climb up to the summit.
