Mount Diablo Gateway

The Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center at the north end of Mount Diablo State Park should be on any outdoor/nature enthusiast's itinerary on a visit to the Diablo Valley. The center's staff can offer suggestions for places to go in the park, while interpretive displays deliver fascinating information on the area's geology, flora, and fauna. You can also purchase trail maps, postcards, and other knickknacks.

Meanwhile, the Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center lies within easy reach of some excellent trails to Deer Flat, Eagle Peak, and well beyond. Heck, you can hoof it all the way to the Mount Diablo summit--almost 7 miles distant--if you're so inclined!

Utrip Tips

*While the trails are open during daylight hours, the visitor's center is open on weekends. Summer hours are 8:00–4:00 and winter hours are 9:00–3:00.
