Distant fireworks from the lower half of Mission Peak

  • Jul 4, 2013 · 7:15 PM

Milpitas, Santa Clara and some Peninsula cities are having fireworks shows starting at about 9:15 PM to 9:30 PM. If there is much interest in hiking to an observation point on the lower half of Mission Peak we will firm up the details. Any comments or suggestions would be welcome.

    Enjoyable and memorable evening. [Apart from the intriguing coyote sighting / episode that I hope ended well - for the coyote!]

    I was worried my directions confused everyone so glad to know most were just running late. It was a beautiful evening with a commanding view of many firework displays, including the unofficial events thrown by the kids in all the neighborhoods of Fremont, Union City, ...

    I made it, but I didn't get there until late so I only hiked about a 1/2 mile up. It was cool, peaceful, beautiful night with a great view of many different firework displays.

    Hey there, the kids and I made it, but we didn't get there until after 8:30pm and only hiked to the first rock outcropping about a quarter of a mile up. Sorry we keep missing you! What a beautiful night though for hiking in the dark!

    To Throw another wrench in on Warren exit off I 680 there is a higher point to see the bay area and likely the fireworks. I also understand the Big Mall? does fireworks as well.

    If we start hiking on the trailhead off Stanford, the climb is pretty steep, but it isn't far to a point that levels off a bit and people could sit. If we started hiking at the trailhead at Ohlone college, there is less of a good stopping point and also the view of the bay is lost before too long.

    I I have never seen the fire works form the east bay so any locating is fine with me.

    I don't know if there are other starting points, but there's free parking available at 2098 Stanford Avenue although space is limited. Street parking is available on Stanford Avenue between Mission and Vineyard.
