Traverse of Mission Peak Wilderness Preserve  Sucess!

Hiked in from Ohlone College, summitting Mission Peak, Mt. Allison, Monument North (unnamed) and Monument South (the named summit). This was my third summit of this peak and probably the last as I'll be leaving the Bay Area. Thank you to my wife and brother for helping with the transport.

Dayhike  Sucess!

Started from Ed Levin and made the fun, quick ascent up to the three peaks. Both times I have been here I have seen a Bald Eagle and a coyote. Monument is the often overlooked, but more enjoyable neighbor of Mission Peak, go check it out!

Std. Route, Ed Levin Park  Sucess!

From TH at dog park in Ed Levin Park. Enjoyed watching hang gliders ride the breeze at the beginning of the walk. Three people seen the entire day. Looking down from the top on the hills of velvety gold, so beautiful. On over to Allison and back. The trip from Monument Peak to Allison was the most memorable.

Triple Play!

Did a one-way carpool of Monmument, Allison and Monument with a handful of friends. It was the middle of 2010, I think...

Monument Via Mission  Sucess!

Nice hike/run up Mission from Stanford, then across the ridge to Monument. Saw a pack of 3-4 coyotes and several Golden Eagles on the ridge! Amazing that despite the 100's who seem to climb Mission daily, very few wander off the Stanford fire road.

Revisited  Sucess!

Several times in the early eighties. A few more times in the mid-nineties with my then fiancee, 'girlblue'. A quick, fun, albeit strenuous hike.

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!

From Mission Peak  Sucess!

2nd time doing this from Stanford Avenue and Mission Peak. This time with Mt Allison too. Amazing how everyone just disappears as soon as you step just a few feet south of Mission Peak.

Monument + Mission BART   Sucess!

Beautiful Bay Area spring hike. Flowers are blooming. Ridge between Monument and Mission was empty; even on a beautiful Saturday I didn't see a soul until meeting the throngs on top of Mission Peak. Took Monument Peak trail up and BART down. Avoid the BART stretch in this park - it's been destroyed to an ankle-breaking terrain from the cows, it's mis-marked, and the Monument Peak trail is much nicer.

From Mt. Allison  Sucess!

Hiked this one with Mt. Allison and Mission Peak. Nice area. Lots of cows and comm towers.

Seems like more of a ridge.  Sucess!

Still, a nice hike.

Route Climbed: from Stanford Av > Mission Peak Date Climbed: Jan. 1st, 2005  Sucess!

I'm surprised more people don't make the trek from Mission Peak on over to Monument Peak. It's an enjoyable hike. I found one of those GeoCache things on the summit.
