City: Fremont Park: Mission Peak Regional PreserveAlternate URL: Click Here
Our 7th annual full moon hike to Mission Peak.
A strenuous, out-and-back hike from Ohlone College to Mission Peak. About 7 miles with a 2100-foot elevation gain. Route will be on the Peak Trail from Ohlone College to Mission Peak.
We will rest, snack and, weather permitting, enjoy the sunset at 8:15 and moonrise at 8:13 before returning. Dress in layers because it can be COLD and WINDY at the peak. Also, to be safe bring a flashlight or headlamp for the dark return from the peak.
Park in the multi-story parking structure about ¼-mile after entering the Ohlone College campus from the Pine Street entrance. Parking is free after 5 PM on Saturdays, but there is a campus curfew at 11 PM, so we must be gone by then or subject to citation. Meet at the parking structure.
