The pages of Mountain Lore hold the stories of small treasures tucked throughout Mount Diablo. An estimated 250 creeks, canyons, trails, and springs exist within the over 20,000 acres of Mount Diablo State Park. Most of these locations are identified by a place name which depicts common fauna, flora, topography, or local historical significance. Mountain Lore endeavors to revitalize the origins and significance of these place names.
