LincolnBCrowded  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2011


The most crowded peak I've ever been up -- arrived before 6am and got the last spot in the parking lot. Saw literally hundreds of people -- just finding privacy to pee was a problem. Climbed it 25 years ago and had it to myself; but now it seems to be the thing to do for church groups etc.

mooheadLove this hike  Sucess!


I love hiking this trail up to Mission Peak. Like others have said, it's a good training hike for longer, harder hikes. Don't forget the sunscreen!

boyblueMany times  Sucess!


First time in 1980 from Stanford Ave. The park was brand new and I had the whole peak to myself. Started using it for training in the early '90s. Usually went up once a day before work- twice on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Wish I was still in that kind of shape!

haishanNice  Sucess!


Ha! Cool to see Mission Peak up here. Hiked it more than 100 times by every route imaginable, used as a training route during the several years I worked down the street in Fremont. I love this peak, every day had a different vibe depending on season, time of day, wind & weather. Best car-to-car time was ~65 minutes. Walking thru cow herds always freaked me out.

Went back determined to get the three peaks (Mission Peak, Mt. Allison, and Monument Peak) and completed without trouble. Easy and enjoyable hike, fantastic views!

Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2010
Took 61 minutes from trailhead to summit. Went over to Mt. Allison afterwords but couldn't find the right patch to Monument Peak so wound up missing out on the three-peak.

Date Climbed: May 8, 2010


This time with Allison and Monument. Only my third time up Mission but have always enjoyed this hike, at least the uphill part. Could do without the walking down.
