Mount Diablo State Park Activities

Mount Diablo has many great activities. Here you will find information about fun activities you can do while visiting Mount Diablo.


Hiking Mount Diablo

One of the pleasures of living near Mt Diablo is the variety of hiking and walking opportunities that it offers. You can drive to the summit and spend an easy 20 minutes walking along the Fire Interpretive Trail or you can hike a round-trip from Mitchell Canyon in Clayton to the top and back again - about an eight-hour, 3400 ft elevation gain (and drop) strenuous work-out.


Biking Mount Diablo

Mt. Diablo State Park is an excellent place to mountain bike. This guide is designed to help off-road cyclists enjoy the park safely without damaging its sensitive environments. Mountain bicyclists share the backcountry with hikers and horseback riders. It's important to be considerate of other recreational users.
