Mission Peak, one of the most popular East Bay hikes, is a great workout with 2,000 feet of climb in two miles and spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and the Diablo Range once you reach the summit.
Awesome hike, prepare to hike as early as the park
Open, because it too hot and no shades in this trails.dont forget to empty your bladder before you start going up because there's no barroom up there . Bring a lots of water and snack. Don't forget your trekking poles too, on the top expect a line to take picture on the famous pole or peak.

Training trail. Up via Horse Heaven then down.
The five stars are for this though climb! I would rate it difficult just because it's hard to hike!
I went on 9/3/16 n not even half a mile I blacked out! Which has never happened.
My guess I was dehydrated.
Went back yesterday and conquered this hike! It's such a great feeling.
Nothing much to see except the cows, wild turkeys. I didn't have to wait much to take the picture.
Please take plenty of water and use sunblock (boy am I paying for it today).
Not a lot of friendly hikers
