Trail shared by Thu Nguyen

A popular steady climb at Mission Peak.

Runner Notes

For runners this is a challenge. This route connects to the Peak Trail which leads to the summit and is a much harder climb compared to the Ohlone College route. You'll need both physical and mental preparation.

Description

Going up to Mission Peak using the Stanford Avenue entrance for hikers is a benchmark. As soon as you hit the first cattle gate, you'll find yourself already heading uphill and things keep going steadily from there. The trail doesn't have any shade which you'll miss on a hot day. However, it does have a few vista points with benches. The view down to the bay is pretty rewarding.
