  • Mt. Diablo has something for everyone. Road cyclists will get a challenging climb. Mountain bikers won't find much true single track but there are plenty of trails. Hikers, cyclists, and equestrians will be rewarded with amazing scenic vistas. There is ample rustic camping. The visitors center at the summit is a great place to visit with a family.
  • Swirling drive up to the mountain. Every turn has a breath taking views, stop only at the designated place. Take some coffee, take a sip and dont forget to enjoy. Beware! Tons of cyclists on road, have patience do not pass them till it is permitted to do. Do not forget to cheer them- we did!! It"s challenging to ride up on Diablo and they really appreciate. Lots of signs to guide drivers around to check out place. Also beware of rattlesnakes, we found few, keep distance and leave them in their natural habitat. Do not forget to go to rock city. Be a child again, climb all those small rock hill as no one is watching. Tip: Get lots of water, food, good shoes, hat(dress according to weather) no stores up at the visitor center. Best experience and a must place to visit with family and friends for picnic or for hike!!
