About Curry Canyon Ranch
Curry Canyon was the largest remaining unprotected canyon on Diablo’s main peaks, between the Diablo summit and the Black Hills. The canyon is only a small part of the property; another half dozen major canyons rise from the valley at 800 feet to six peaks. The six peaks include Windy Point, Knobcone Point, and 2080-foot Cave Point, the ranch’s highest elevation. Knobcone Point was once a destination for tourists to Mount Diablo along the historic “Curry-Cave Trail” beginning in the 1870s.
The property has incredible topography ranging from Curry Creek to steep wooded and shaded canyon walls and grasslands-lined ridges. It has more than a mile of exposed sandstone cliffs—which had been the most significant exposed rock habitats left unprotected in the county. Similar in size and beauty to Castle Rock, the cliffs are a nesting site for rare peregrine and prairie falcons, and could one day be home to California condors.
