Start at the Juniper Campground parking lot, following the Juniper Trail up and up to the summit of Mt. Diablo, take some time to explore the Visitor Center and and learn some history of the area (including its connection with Mt. Lola in the Sierra and importance in the USGS survey of California). Then, take the Summit Trail to the North Peak Trail around to connect with the Bald Ridge Trail to Meridian Trail, and then the Deer Flat Road back to your starting point. This loop is characterized by wonderful sweeping views of the East Bay Area and, on clear days, peeks of Mt. Tam and the Sierra Nevada... bring your camera! No dogs are allowed on California State Park trails.
