Mission Peak New Years Eve Hike
December 31, 2011
Start Time
**** 9:30 PM ****

View of The Evening Sky and The City Lights
Trailhead Right Off Of Anza-Pine Road In Ohlone College.

The Place

Rising steeply to the east behind the city of Fremont, Mission and Monument peaks form a dramatic backdrop to the South Bay. Mission Peak has been described as one of the Bay Area's most underrated summits. The view from the top during the daytime is breath taking, but at night time it becomes gorgeous!!! Ohlone College trail (properly called the Peak Trail or the Bay Ridge Trail) is the easiest and the fastest route to get to the eastern wilderness side of the preserve. Easiest because it is the least steep - not easiest as in easy. The Ohlone trail is interesting because a segment of the trail goes through a wooded section where you are very likely to see or hear a rafter of turkeys. Except for the wooded section, the trail is mostly a fire road.
Parking on Mission Boulevard is your best choice.
