On January 22, Diablo Community Services District Board of Directors continued to review steps to close the cut-through path, and force people on to dangerous Diablo Road to access Mount Diablo State Park. We are fighting back.

The cut-through path between Alameda Diablo and Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd. is a public easement, granted decades ago when property was developed in the area and homeowners wanted to ensure that people riding and hiking from Diablo retained access to the state park. Bike East Bay is working with local champions and reaching out to representatives at California State Parks and Contra Costa Supervisor Diane Burgess to step in, resolve any issues with this easement, and preserve safe access to Mount Diablo for generations to come.

We are also tracking developments at the Contra Costa District Attorney’s office and at the Local Area Formation Commission of Contra Costa County, to ensure that public funds are used to maintain public roads in Diablo, and not private driveways. We expect to have a more comprehensive update for you in the next month.
