Join the Black Mountain Hiking Section of the Sierra club at the Stanford Ave parking lot at 5:30pm for this strenuous hike. We will follow a loop by going up via the Horse Heaven Trail and returning via the main route, Peak Trail to Hidden ValleyTrail. We should be back at the parking lot by 8:30 p.m. This event covers 6+ miles and 2,300 ft of cumulative elevation gain, and is not a beginner hike. Mission Peak is very unpredictable at the top, so dress in layers, and a consider bringing a snack to share while taking in the view from the top.
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. The parking lot is often full, and you may need to park up to
1/4 mile from the trailhead. As a courtesy to your fellow hikers,
please arrive early, and allow time to find a parking space.
