Shell Ridge Open Space Preserve

Located just outside of Walnut Creek, the Shell Open Space Preserve is a playground for East Bay mountain bikers. Wide dirt roads with the option of single track await all those who want to ride along the lower ridges of Mount Diablo. With cattle, grass covered hills, and numerous creek crossings, riders are guaranteed to have an adventure. Those wanting to tackle a good deal of climbing can follow fire roads, single track, and pavement up to the Mount Diablo Visitor Center and beyond.
