Pine Street, Fremont, CA
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 four 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.
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.
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: I recommend you arrange your own carpools where it is most convenient for you. Meet: Ohlone College multistory parking lot. (Multistory structure off Pine Street). We will meet at the corner of the lot nearest the tennis courts and enter the park at the Ohlone College trailhead to the Peak Trail.
Directions: Ohlone College is located in the City of Fremont on Mission Blvd.
