Event Notes:

Full Moon Hike! This is a short but tough 3 mile in/3 mile back hike. Approximately 2000 ft elevation gain in those short 3 miles! Come prepared with plenty of water and a snack. We'll hang out at the top for a bit to enjoy the sunset and scenery. Bring a flashlight!

Trail Notes:

The almost full moon night should light up the way on this Mission Peak excursion, we'll begin at the edge of a Fremont residential neighborhood, hike fire roads, then take a little trail straight to the summit an over 2,000-foot ascent. On a clear day, the 360-degree views are inspiring but on windy days you may want to immediately head back downhill to the parking lot. This is a 6.2 miles/3 hour strenuous out-and-back hike with a total elevation gain of 2500 feet. (The Trail head is about 500 feet)
