“We are so lucky to have this wonderful place in our back yard”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Mt. Diablo can be seen from just about anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. Besides being a magnificent landmark, Mt. Diablo offers miles of hiking trails, overnight camping, picnic sites and mountain biking trails. It also offers one of the premier climbs in Northern California for road cyclists. A hike on Mt. Diablo in the Spring when the hills are all green in a wonderful experience. What a blessing to have such a great natural resource so close by!

“Love the views”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

The views from the top are wonderful. We have hiked there a couple of times. The winding roads can leave you a little car sick and you have to share the road with alot of bikes.

“This Mountain is no devil”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Well...it is a devil to climb in the summer heat, but drive to the top for a wonderful view and hike up the east side in the spring for wild flowers.

“Excellent Hiking”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Numerous trails. Great place to bike. The views on top are second to none. You can actually see the curvature of the earth from up there.
