Mt. Diablo APP

There's now a Mount Diablo app for your phone. Read about it below, download and install today!  This post from Colonel Al and the Mount Diablo Cyclists Facebook group.


We now have a mobile application for use while in the Mount Diablo State Park! It is called “Mount Diablo” and is designed to provide you easy access to important information as well as report issues. You can check the weather out at the Summit or the Junction, get park info, contact park staff or report issues. To report an issue, just use your mobile phone, take a picture and the application captures your exact location and sends it to park staff. No more sending emails trying to describe where the issue was.

How do I get the application?

Go to the Apple App Store or Google play and download the application called: “GORequest” by GOGovapps, Inc. Once installed, run the application. If your location services are turned off, you will be prompted to turn them on. Depending on where you are in the park, you may be prompted to “Select a City”. If you are prompted, you will have several cities listed such as Pittsburg, Oakley, San Pablo, Danville, Lafayette and one called “Mount Diablo”. Select “Mount Diablo” from the list. It should be at the bottom of the list. If you are not presented with a list, the application will simply appear. If you run the application elsewhere in the Bay Area, you may not see “Mount Diablo” as a choice. Quit the app and wait until you get closer to the Mountain. This is a temporary situation and will be resolved in the coming months.  Please share the Mount Diablo App with all park visitors!!
