Event Notes:

Full Moon Hike! This is a strenuous 6-mile out-and-back hike. Approximately a 2000-foot elevation gain to the peak! Come prepared with plenty of water and a snack. We'll rest and snack at the peak for a bit to enjoy the sunset, moonrise and scenery. Sunset at 8:12 and moonrise at 9:29. Bring a flashlight! It can be hot at the start but cold and windy at the peak, so dress in layers. Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes early because the parking lot will likely be full. Street parking is available about a block down from the lot. Nearby address is 1874 Stanford Ave, Fremont.

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)
