missionpeak3.jpgWith a heart-pumping ascent to breathtaking vistas, Mission Peak is one of the most challenging and rewarding East Bay hikes. Don’t miss the opportunity enjoy our May Hike - have your photograph taken with the rest of the brave Cornell hikers at the famous “Mission Peeker” summit.


Join Cornell University alumni and friends for a hike of the infamous Hidden Valley Trail to Mission Peak summit.  We'll hike a partially paved trail over 2,100 feet in elevation change. The scenery is breathtaking. The view is stupendous. There is an abundance of wildlife - including eagles, hawks, cows, elk, deer, bobcats and the occasional human hanglider.


Rest assured, there will be a group photo at the “Mission Peeker” summit with the Cornell University banner. It’s one of the most geotagged landmarks in Silicon Valley!



Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 1:30PM. Please arrive 20 minutes early.


Location: Stanford Avenue Mission Peak Parking Lot - 1880 Stanford Avenue, Fremont, CA 94539 (overflow parking can be found on side streets).


Trail Length: About 5.6 miles on a partially paved trail with approximately 2,100 feet of vertical elevation change.


Post Hike Meal: We will announce the restaurant location (in nearby Union City / Fremont) via email the night before the hike.
