Event Notes:

New Years Day Mission Peak Hike

A challenging 10 mile, 2200 ft hike from EBRPD Sunol Regional Wilderness to EBRPD Mission Peak.

We'll start by the toilets across from the Wilderness Sign-in Panel and head up Ohlone Wilderness, Laurel Loop, Eagle Loop and Peak Trails to a snack on the Peak. The return route will retrace our steps back to Sunol.

A slightly longer option will ascend the Peak from the North side and return via the southern route.

Directions to Sunol from Google Maps

Note: Everyone must carry a current Ohlone Wilderness Permit Map ($2 at the Kiosk, good for a year) on this hike.

From the EBRPD Sunol Web Page

Hikers who cross into the San Francisco Water Department lands that connect Mission Peak Regional Preserve, Sunol-Ohlone Regional Wilderness and Del Valle Regional Park must carry the Ohlone Wilderness Trail map/permit. Each person age 12 years or older is required to have their own permit. Hikers must sign in at trailheads as they enter these lands.

Leader: Joel Schantz

Trail Notes:

This is a difficult hike. 10.5 miles and 2,200 feet of elevation gain. Shade to start but then it is all sun. It's similiar to hiking to Juniper Camp from Mitchell Canyon. Be prepared. Potties and water at the start. It's dog friendly, but I would be cautious. Fee for dogs $2. Hiking poles are a plus.

Trailhead Directions:

Exit 680 (either direction) at Calaveras Rd. From 680S you want to go under the frewway. From 680N you want to exit right. About 4 miles along Calaveras to Geary Rd. Take it into the Park. Watch out for bikers after 680. It is a winding road.

Parking Fee: $6
Other Fees: $2 Ohlone permit
