Longer, higher and further than it looks. This park is huge. When the gate is manned, there is a $5 parking fee. That usually applies on weekends and summer days. You can also park for free on the east side, at the road to enter Contra Loma. If the strip of parking spaces is not full. If that is your plan, get there early or hope to get lucky. There is a lovely group picnic area at Star Mine and there is no easy way to get there. I love that because it usually means we have it to ourselves.

Nice and relaxing! There's plenty of fresh air and nice hiking trails everywhere. The swim lagoon is real cool. There's ample parking and the restrooms are plentiful and clean (no they're not portables) One thing that irks me is dog owners, please pick up after your dog!

It is a very lovely park. It consists of hills and flat round valley. Mt.Diablo can be seen. Total 8 miles. Horseback seems to be popular, I saw one rider and several water container for horse. I really enjoyed vast and nice hills and valley view. If you want to hike more than 8 miles, you can hike in Morgan Territory Preserve, they are connected via trail.
