History Danger Zone 1920 to 2021

The primary access to Mount Diablo State Park is Mount Diablo Scenic Boulevard, a small, narrow, old road that is deadly dangerous.  Since 1931 California State Parks has had an easement over this private road so as to provide access for park visitors.  Their easement includes a half-mile narrow and twisting section of Scenic we call “The Danger Zone,” where a cyclist was killed in 2019 and multiple near-misses occur on a daily basis.  Yet, the State has no plan to address the safety of The Danger Zone for their visitors and, in fact, has been quietly obstructionist to all efforts to improve the situation. But don’t take our word for it: Read the History.  Then, please, send in any additional information, emails, documents, surveys, photos, videos and suggestions.  We look forward to hearing from you and to making The Danger Zone on Scenic safer for park visitors and all users of the road!
