Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center

The Mitchell Canyon Interpretive Center is located in Mount Diablo State Park at the south end of Mitchell Canyon Road in Clayton,CA. The Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center is staffed by State Park Volunteers and is supported by the Mount Diablo Interpretive Association whose main goal is to provide visitors with information so they can better enjoy the Park and it's natural wonders.

The Center is currently open on Saturdays and Sundays, and some holidays 8am to 4pm during spring and summer months and 9am to 3pm during fall and winter months.

Mitchell Canyon Interpretive CenterThe Center has displays about various aspects of Mt. Diablo State Park, such as geology, wildlife, trails, and plant life. Interpretive materials about the Park, such as geology, wildlife, and plants, are for sale. There are also postcards, note cards, trail maps, and water for sale. A docent is on duty when the Center is open to answer questions and to handle sales of materials. In the future the Center will also serve as a focal point in Mitchell Canyon for scheduled group hikes and lectures. We welcome all visitors to this part of the State Park to stop in and see the new Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center.
