As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

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.

Special Notes: Wear RED so we can easily keep the group together. Bring two bottles of water and plenty of sunscreen - the trail is completely exposed at points. Dress in several layers, the summit is often snow capped during the winter months.
