Hike Mission Peak from Ohlone College

Details: Explore Mission Peak Regional Preserve from end to end. Enjoy expansive views of the South Bay and little explored parts of this park. The distance is approximately 9 miles with approximately 2500 feet of elevation gain. The peak will be our lunch stop and we will return to the cars by sunset.

Pace: Moderate to leisurely, i.e. approximately 2 mph on average. If you prefer to hike really fast and get back early, this is not the hike for you. Conversely this is not a stroll. If 2 mph is faster than you like to hike you will not enjoy this one. Mellow hikers especially welcome.

Leader: Steve Bakaley ([masked] - preferred or[masked])

Bring: Lunch, liquids, layered clothing, and well fitting hiking boots

Meet: Ohlone College Fremont Campus Parking lot M behind the swimming pool at 9:30 AM

Cancellation: Any rain cancels.

Cost: Free. There is no charge for parking on Sundays.

Directions: From Hwy 680 south take the Mission Blvd(238) exit that follows Vargas Rd and go south on Mission Blvd. From Hwy 880 south take the Auto Mall Parkway exit east toward the hills. It will become Durham Road. Continue east on Durham Road to Mission Blvd and turn left (north). Enter campus by turning onto Anza Pine. Parking Lot M is just past the tennis courts.

Carpool Info: Leader will be at Walnut Creek BART at 8:30AM. Recommend attendees organize their own carpools where it is convenient for them.

      Because my car is now full for the mission peak hike, I may need an extra driver who is willing to meet at the MacArthur BART station. Please let me know if you are willing to drive. I would really appreciate it.
