That branch line ran until the 1970s and is now part of the Iron Horse Trail, which bikers, runners, and walkers use to stay active. Today, public transportation is available via Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), which offers service throughout the Bay Area via 48 stations and six routes. The total land area of Walnut Creek is nearly 20 square miles, and portions sit beneath the western part of Mount Diablo.
