Diablo is a small town in Contra Costa County, California, about 80 miles southwest of the state capital of Sacramento. Covering just 1.4 square miles of land, it is a quaint little town where you will have time to relax, unwind and enjoy some quiet with your pup. There aren’t any vets or animal hospitals in the town of Diablo, but there are five in neighboring Danville, so help is never far away if your beloved furry pal falls ill on your travels.
When you arrive, get to know the area with a little on-lead walk
together through the streets and check out the shops that line the main road.
You have a spectatular view of Mount Diablo and its subsidiary peaks from town
too, so bring your camera! Mount Diablo’s peak is an almighty 3,849 feet tall
and appears as a double pyramid shape, standing out amongst the otherwise low elevation.
The Los Cerros Fire Trail runs north to south along the border of Diablo and Danville, and is a great track to take your dog for an on-lead walk. It is out-and-back, so remember how far you have walked as you need to return the same distance!
The word “Diablo” is Spanish for ‘devil” – but don’t let that put you off visiting
this lovely little town. The gateway to many puptastic things to do, it is well
worth stopping in!
