The BBQ Terrace trail takes you through tree-lined, shaded streamside trails, and over the open rolling hills dotted with large oak trees that so typically characterize central Contra Costa County parklands and Mt. Diablo State Park.  Much of the trail weaves along via level to moderate slopes, until the final climb over grassy hillsides up the slopes of Mt. Diablo - which is steep, but a small portion of the overall trail.  From the final ascent, extensive views of the valleys and towns spreading out around Mt. Diablo expand as you climb.  This trip offers more solitude than many portions of the park that originate from more heavily used entrances, and for a fair portion, includes the quiet calm of a riparian path.
