Fages & Fages II Trail

The Fages Trail is a 10.4-mile Historic Trail of the former Mt. Diablo Council and was established in 1973 by Oo Yum Buli Lodge, Order of the Arrow.  It marks the route traversed two centuries ago by the first European expedition of record. They passed through the East Bay Hills seeking a route to Point Reyes.  The trail is named in honor of the expedition’s leader Captain Pedro Fages (pronounced Fah Hace).  Over 15,000 people have hiked the trail since 1973.

The Fages II Trail is a 20-mile hike that was established in 1990 by Oo Yum Buli member Don Scott.  The longer hike is for older Scouts only and is organized and run by the Order of the Arrow.  The Fages II hike starts at the Wildcat Canyon Alvarado Trailhead Staging Area.  Remember to bring plenty of water, as the trail can be extremely hot during the summer.
