Overview

Rising steeply to the east of the city of Fremont, Mission and Monument peaks form a dramatic backdrop to the South Bay. Hawks and vultures share the summit airspace with sailplanes riding the thermals, and a down-to-earth herd of feral goats roams the cliffs. This trail cuts though the well used Mission Peak park and into Sonol Regional Wilderness. Hikers are rewarded with views of Mount Hamilton to the south, the Santa Cruz Mountains to the west, Mt. Tamalpais to the north, and Mt. Diablo and the Sierra Nevada to the northeast.
Park hours are strictly enforced. Visitors found inside the park, entrance area, and parking lot after posted hours will be subject to citation and or arrest. Citations cost a minimum of $300.
