Summer Sunset Hike To Mission Peak

This Sunday, August 16th, let’s get together and break a sweat as we hike up the iconic Mission Peak summit!

The park’s closing time is 10 PM and is enforced by Fremont PD. For this reason, we will be starting the hike promptly at 5:00 PM to avoid the risk of finishing after closing hours. Our goal is to all hike up as a group so please plan on being at the trailhead at 5 and ready to hike so that no one gets left behind! Also, please factor in 10-15 minutes to find parking, as the parking lot almost always fills up and most of us will need to park on the local streets along Stanford Ave. More info on parking and directions can be found at the bottom of the email.
Note: The hike may be challenging. There are intervals of uphill hiking and one stretch of the trail that gets a bit rocky. Come challenge yourself and join us on this rewarding adventure, and we promise you will not be disappointed when we reach the top! This will be a great opportunity to spend a fine summer evening with your fellow YPs, get in a nice workout, and did we mention the view?

What you’ll need:
Comfortable hiking or running shoes
A hat/sunglasses/sunscreen (no trees or shade on the hike, so it will get hot while the sun is out on our way up)
Bottle or canteen for water. There is a water fountain at the beginning of the trail where you can fill up, as well as bathrooms.
Snacks to eat along the way

We will be meeting at the Stanford Avenue parking lot, where the trail begins. It is located at the east end of Stanford Avenue, off Mission Blvd. This area provides very limited parking and is usually full especially on weekends and holidays. If you find it is full, you can park along Stanford Avenue and walk up to the parking lot.
Parking lot hours are from 6:30 AM – 9:00 PM, so you should park on the street as we cannot guarantee we will be down by 9. However, there is a strict 10:00 PM curfew that Fremont police are enforcing, meaning that we must all be off of the trail by 10.
