San Damiano is situated in the hills above Danville. If you are looking to extend your time here with us, here are a few suggestions. The Town of Danville website provides a more comprehensive listing (http://www.danville.ca.gov/Things-To-Do/)

You can drive to the top to enjoy the view from the summit or chose from many hiking trails. Campsites are also available for reservation.
