Crowded  Sucess!

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.

Love 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!

Many 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!

Nice  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.

Completed the Trio  Sucess!

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!

Done this morning  Sucess!

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.

Nice hike  Sucess!

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.
