Also recently updated is the Trail Map of Mount Diablo State Park, published by the Mount Diablo Interpretive Association (MDIA). Now in its fifth edition, this digitally produced map highlights new public land acquisitions (of several thousands of acres) and new interpretive material. On the back are evocative descriptions of seven popular hikes in the park. Map symbols are now standardized to coordinate with materials produced by other local agencies and indicate trail use types such as bicycle trails. The map can be purchased for $5 at park entrance kiosks, at the Mitchell Canyon Interpretive and Summit Visitor Centers within the park, or by mail from MDIA (download order form at www.mdia.org).
