Tree Question

While walking around Mount Diablo State Park, we noticed these trees. Mahogany-red colored bark covers most of the tree.

The red bark is extremely smooth, looking almost variegated on some branches and areas of the trunk.

Anybody know what tree this is?

Its a Manzanita tree and they only live in southwestern Canada, the western US, and northwestern Mexico.
