What we're about
Join other hiking enthusiasts in an intense, but short workout. Mission Peak is a peak east of Fremont, California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremont,_California) with an elevation of 2,517 ft (767m).
This is a strenuous hike with a constant uphill climb until you reach the summit. The elevation gain is 2100 ft. This is an out-and-back hike. The trail is a well maintained gravel base until the last half mile. From this point the trail is hard pack dirt and rocky.
This hike is not for beginners.
Finding a parking spot usually takes 20-30 minutes. Plan accordingly.
