Mt. Diablo State Park offers one of the most beautiful views of Concord. Explore the park’s many hiking trails that will lead you to creeks, waterfalls and valleys while enjoying the mountain air. When you are ready for a break, relax and have a snack at one of over 50 picnic spots. Gates open at 8:00 am and close at sunset, and with trails that range from easy to hard, it's easy to find a trail for every level of hiking.

Lime Ridge Open Space has a main access point located at 3701 Treat Blvd, right in Concord’s backyard, with 175 acres northwest of Treat Boulevard, between San Miguel and Cowell Roads. Throughout your hike, you will be able to observe the various wildlife and plants native to the area. Take your time to take in the scenery and enjoy your outdoor adventure!
