Mount Diablo State Park

13 mi. away
Mount Diablo State park is one of the ecological treasures of the San Francisco Bay Area. Discover for yourself the mountain’s beautiful wildflowers, its extensive trail system, fascinating wildlife and distinctive rock formations. View the stars from its lofty heights, bike ride to its 3,849 foot summit, Mount Diablo, or explore the more remote trails by horseback. The park offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping. Geographers claim that hikers can see more of the earth’s surface from the top of Mount Diablo than from any other peak in the world with only one exception: Africa’s legendary 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro. The far-reaching panorama from Mount Diablo is all the more impressive considering the mountain’s relatively short height. Two reasons for the grand views: (1) the mountain rises solo very abruptly from its surroundings, and (2) the land surrounding the mountain—the San Franciso Bay and Central Valley—is nearly flat.
