State Park, Interpretive Association sign trail; signals East Bay-Contra Costa segment is finished

Even more trail goodness! This time Mount Diablo State in the East Bay – Contra Costa County segment.

In June – September 2015, Mount Diablo State Park officials, Mount Diablo Interpretive Association, town of Clayton, and the trail council worked together scouting potential alignments & attaching trail signs on posts. We are grateful to Mark Sinclair of State Parks, John Mercurio, and MDIA’s Mike and Ruth Ann Woodring for completing the state park signing.

The result: newly open trail entering the park from the southwest via the Briones-Mt Diablo Regional Trail (managed by East Bay Regional Park District) and from the northeast via the town of Clayton (home to MCCT trail-co founder George Cardinet Jr.)

Hooray!! The MCCT is now continuous between Martinez (and Berkeley) to Antioch’s Big Break Regional Shoreline, the gateway to the Delta. This announcement marks the 2nd completed MCCT segment, with three segments to go (another completed segment is planned to come online in 2018.)

Busy trail junction in Berkeley with Meadow Canyon Trail, East Bay Skyline Trail, & Bay Area Ridge Trail
