At 3,849 ft Mt Diablo is the tallest peak in the
eastbay. Views on a clear day allow you to see as far as Mt Lassen
National Park, the crest of the Sierra Nevada, and almost the
entire bay area. There are a number of trails in the park that
will allow you a wide variety of hiking. You'll see anything
from rugged dry canyons to waterfalls and nice green valleys
full of wildflowers. There is also a wide variety of wildlife.
The eastern side of the park is off of the Morgan Territory Rd
which is the most remote part of the county. Don't go there if
you feel uncomfortable driving a narrow one lane road where you
might have to come to a sudden stop and back up to allow someone
by. Cyclist also like to use this road to do a loop around Mt
Diablo so watch out for them also.
