Join other hiking enthusiasts in an intense workout in short period of time. We hike Mission Peak every Wednesday in the afternoon. Mission Peak is a peak east of Fremont, California with an elevation of 2,517 ft (767m). It is part of a ridge that includes Mount Allison and Monument Peak . Mission Peak is located in the Mission Peak Regional Preserve and is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District .

This is a strenuous trail with a constant uphill climb until you reach the summit. The elevation gain is approximately 2100 ft and the hike duration is less than 2 1/2 hours. This is an out-and-back hike. The trail is a well maintained gravel base until the last half mile. From this point the trail is hard pack dirt and rocky.

Parking Fee: $4 per vehicle at Ohlone College parking lot K

Highlights

Mission Peak offers regular panoramic views of the Bay Area. It is common to be able to see the other high peaks of the Bay Area, including Mount Diablo , Mount Hamilton , and Mount Tamalpais . Furthermore, the peak provides good views of the cities of Oakland , San Jose , San Francisco , and Fremont . Under the right conditions (usually a crisp and clear winter day) even the Sierra Nevada range can be seen approximately 100 miles to the east.

Wildlife

Predators include bobcats , coyotes , gray foxes , and mountain lions which are very rarely seen. Small mammals include the Black-tailed Jackrabbit , the Western Gray Squirrel , and California Ground Squirrels . Visitors should be advised that Northern Pacific rattlesnakes are very common. Southern Alameda county has the high density of nesting Golden Eagles , thus, they can be seen often, along with Turkey Vultures , Red-tailed Hawks , Red-shouldered Hawks , Prairie Falcons , and Sharp-shinned Hawks . They also nest here, usually in steep valleys on the slopes, where no trails enter.
