Mount Diablo - Wall Point Road

Loop • 9 mi • 1800 ft

Dominating the landscape in the East Bay, Mount Diablo towers to a height of 3,849 feet and can be seen from nearly anywhere in the Bay Area. Easily the largest park in the Bay Area, Mount Diablo State Park offers visitors many miles of trails for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. This ride is located in the western part of the park and is easily accessible near Alamo and Danville. It is an ideal introduction to the park by virtue of the wide variety of terrain and geology along the way and the stunning views of the distant summit above and population centers below. The route follows wide fire roads, often quite steep, with loose gravel in some places. A short single-track section will provide some challenge for intermediate riders. Trails are not always clearly marked, so it is important to follow the directions closely.

Not very much technical to talk about here but the first half gives you all the uphill you want if that's what you are into. Beautiful scenery. You should be able to knock it off in less than 2 hours.
