The Draft RTMP for Mount Diablo State Park describes the existing roads and trails of the park and provides specific direction for management and operations in the future. The goal is to ensure that recreational trail opportunities are made available at their fullest potential, while protecting the park’s cultural and natural resources. Set aside by the State in 1931, Mount Diablo State Park has an extensive system of roads and trails including 221 miles of non-motorized trails set in a variety of habitats,including grasslands, woodlands, chaparral, creeks, ponds, and seasonal water falls. The park holds numerous Native American sites and a collection of 1930s buildings constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
