Briones-Mount Diablo Regional Trail

Briones-Mount Diablo Regional Trail

East Bay Regional Park District 80 years logoAs part of the East Bay Regional Park District, one of the most dog-friendly park districts in California, dogs must be on a leash where posted and under full verbal control elsewhere, and there is a lot of elsewhere!

Downloadable trail maps, brochures and mileage charts are available for each regional park and trail.  

Trails that allow dogs are shared with equestrians, although no bicycles are allowed. Safe multiple use of this and other multiple-use trails requires everyone’s cooperation.

Each trail user is asked to exercise common courtesy. Hikers must yield to horses. Stay to the right of the trail except when passing, and do not approach a horse from the rear unannounced.

The Briones to Mount Diablo Regional Trail spans the distance between Briones Regional park and Mount Diablo State Park, serving the communities of Lafayette and Walnut Creek and makes important connections to major regional trails.

There are several staging areas throughout Contra Costa County. Please note: dogs are not allowed on trails inside state-park boundaries.

Please clean up after your dog so all of us can continue to enjoy the open space access afforded our four-legged companions.
