Moonlight Hike on Mission Peak
Leader: Hike Leader is William Yragui, [masked],[masked] cell Synopsis: Moonlight hike from Ohlone College to Mission Peak summit on the Peak Trail. Headlamps or flashlights recommended for short sections of the trail but the objective is to enjoy hiking in the moonlight with no or very limited artificial illumination. Level: Moderate ++ (2C) Not a beginner’s hike as this hike will be difficult for new hikers, hikers out of shape or those with phobias about hiking at night. We will stop on a regular basis but must complete the hike by 10pm when the park closes. This means we have 3.5 hours to complete a 7 mile hike with significant elevation gain. If you are unsure about your physical condition, please hike another day where the time required to complete the hike is not an issue. Exiting the park after 10pm can lead to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing by EBRPD. Estimated Distance of Hike: Seven + miles Gross Elevation Gain: 2100 ft. Parking Cost: $ 4.00 parking fee if you park in the Ohlone College multi story garage. Free if you park on Mission Blvd. and walk onto campus. If you park off campus, walk up Pine Street until you see the multi-story garage on your left. It is the building that has multi-floors and looks like a parking garage. We will meet across the street at the trail head. Bring: Two liters of water, lamp, snack, layered clothing, and enthusiasm. Recommend well-fitting boots for traction and ankle support. Hiking poles may be helpful. Cancellation: Activity is held rain or cloudy weather, but may be altered due to snow or hail. Carpool: We recommend you arrange your own carpools where it is most convenient for you. The nearest BART station is the Fremont Warm Springs BART Station. Meet: Entrance to the park - above the tennis courts at the Ohlone College trailhead to the Peak Trail. Park entrance is across the street from the multi-floor parking structure located at the end of Pine Street. Directions: Ohlone College is located in the City of Fremont on Mission Blvd. Use the Pine Street entrance to minimize drive time.

What we're about

The Sierra Club San Francisco Bay Chapter offers hikes and outdoor recreation for people of all ages. For a more complete listing of all Chapter outings and events see our calendar (https://www.sierraclub.org/san-francisco-bay/activities). There are many more events on the calendar than it is possible to list on Meetup!

Outings are conducted by the San Francisco Bay Chapter's Activity Sections and Regional Groups. Activity Sections are organized around either an activity, such as hiking or backpacking, or a social theme, such as Sierra Singles. No matter the theme, our outings and activities are open to all. Everyone is welcome, including those who are not members of Sierra Club (unless, rarely, otherwise stated). For more information about the Chapter's activity sections, click here (https://www.sierraclub.org/san-francisco-bay/activity-sections).

You can also join the Sierra Club, which is a good idea because it is the Sierra Club that makes all this possible. Join or renew today (http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=DLjTBfJ8JvY&offerid=343370.10000002&type=3&subid=0). If you'd like to lead hikes or other outings, you'll need to be a member of the Club.

We also advocate for policies that protect our natural environment, support environmental candidates for public office, and provide opportunities for people who want to develop leadership skills to give back to the community and help the environment. We serve Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Francisco Counties, California.
