Directions: From I-680 in Danville, take Diablo Rd. exit and head east. In .7 miles, turn right to stay on Diablo Rd. Turn left at Mt. Diablo Scenic Blvd (stop sign). You are now on the course. In about 1.5 miles you will come to a gate. From there it is 6 miles to the junction where you will turn right onto Summit Rd and continue to the summit parking lot.
Special Instructions:
The gate into the park is opened for us by special arrangement at 5:30. Please try to be at the gate by 5:20 so that you can be first through the gate and not have to pass a bunch of riders on your way up. It can be very cold on top, particulary if it's windy.

Google directions to the top don't work, but this can give you an overall view. The 2nd link to Mt Diabo Scenic will get you on the right road. From there it's about 11 miles to the top.
