Event Notes:

New Years Eve Mission Peak Hike

A challenging 10 mile, 2200 ft out-and-back 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 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.

For the less adventuresome, the hike to Eagle Spring Backpack Camp provides an easier option at about 9 miles, 1800 ft of elevation gain.

TIP: There is plenty of Parking on the right, past the sign-in panel, near the horse corral/ Ohlone Wilderness trail-head.

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.
