Once the supply center for the product it is named for, Concrete’s silos held the ingredients used to make the Ross and Diablo Dams in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Now it is a center for family fun at the base of the mountains, and Silo Park features a splash pad in summer, a skate park and playground. Stop in 5 B’s Bakery for great breakfast food before heading out fishing, hiking, or just enjoying the national forest. Come back to Annie’s Pizza for dinner! Nearby in Marblemount the Wilderness Information Center, (open seasonally) is the perfect place to see exhibits about wilderness and backcountry travel, or chat with the Rangers about conditions.
