This event is sponsored by the Black Mountain Hiking Section
We will meet at the Stanford Ave parking lot for a prompt 5:30 p.m. departure for this strenuous and fast paced 2C hike. We will likely be going up via the Horse Heaven Trail and returning via the main route, Peak Trail to Hidden Valley Trail. This event covers 6+ miles and 2,300 ft of cumulative elevation gain.
Bring sturdy boots layered clothing and a snack. Mission Peak is very unpredictable at the top, so a warm drink is a good idea while enjoying the stunning views. To get there, from Hwy 680 take Exit 12 for Mission Blvd. East. Merge onto Mission Blvd. Turn right onto Stanford Ave. Stanford Ave. dead ends at the parking lot. If the parking lot is full, as it often is, make a U-turn and find street parking.
