Devil's Elbow

Mount Diablo Devils Elbow

Summit Road hairpin at an elevation of 3,480 feet (1,061 meters)

Mount Diablo State Park has two entrances, from where narrow roads lead up to Mount Diablo Summit. These roads are chains of serpentine curves with many “SHARE THE ROAD” signs. Both park roads meet at the Junction Ranger Station, from where the Summit Road continues to the top. Devil's Elbow is less than a mile away from the summit. There is limited parking space at the elbow's tip—next to a trail kiosk. A short trail leads uphill to the Lower Summit Parking Lot, the Mary Bowerman Trail and the historic Summit Visitor Center. The Devil's Elbow trailhead is also the starting point of the North Peak Trail. This hiking and mountain biking trail travels across south-facing slopes below the summit and Devil's Pulpit and continues in northeast direction toward North Peak
