Mission Peak

We enjoy squeezing in a hike whenever we can, this time we were able to do a little hiking while we were in California.

Mission Peak is a peak east of Fremont, California. It is part of a ridge that includes
Mount Allison and Monument Peak. Mission Peak is located in the Mission Peak Regional
Preserve and is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District.

Views from the peak vary with weather conditions, but it is common to be able to see the other high peaks of the Bay Area, including Mount Diablo, Mount Hamilton, and Mount Tamalpais. Furthermore, the peak provides good views of the cities of Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, and Fremont. Under the right conditions (usually a crisp and clear winter day) even the Sierra Nevada range can be seen approximately 100 miles to the east.
