Mount Diablo State Park is the crown jewel of the East Bay. On a clear day, from the summit, 40 of California’s 58 counties can be seen, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Sentinel Dome of Yosemite Valley (provided you have good binoculars). On the way up, you’ll pass classic East Bay chapparal and grasslands.
