Subject: [SouthBayRamblersHikingGroup] New Meetup: Mission Peak

Announcing a new Meetup for South Bay Ramblers Hiking Group!

What: Mission Peak

When: Saturday, May 15,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Mission Peak at Stanford and Mission Blvd
Stanford Ave at Mission Blvd
Fremont, CA 94539

Mission Peak overlooks Fremont, and it's spectacular panorama includes the southern arm of San Francisco Bay and the area from San Jose to Mount Tamalpais. To the north there are views of Mount Diablo, the San Ramon Valley, and the Hamilton Range. Mission Peak provides some of the most spectacular summit view in the Bay Area including Mount Hamilton to the south, the Santa Cruz Mountains to the west, Mt. Tamalpais to the north, and Mt. Diablo, and the Sierra Nevada to the northeast.

This is a strenuous hike of about seven miles with a climb of nearly 2,200 feet, but the views are worth it. Our ascent will be on the Hidden Valley Trail and the descent on the Horse Heaven and Peak Meadow Trails. In addition to reaching the Summit of Mission Peak, along the way we will view the old McClure ranch house in Hidden Valley and the A.A. Moore Memorial Grove of magnificent live oak trees. There is no water on the trail. There is a toilet at the start and near the peak.

Meet at 8:30 at the Trailhead or 8:00 at the carpool location from James Lick High School at the corner of White Road and Alum Rock Avenue.
