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.

Steep climb. No shades. Excellent views at the peak. Very popular hike among locals.

Did the loop. It is a real workout. Beautiful day. Lots of vertical.

1). Illegal the "trail" is off limits
2). Way too steep to be moderate

First time the AllTrail trail was wrong.

Good trail with average views. But the view from the top is really nice. Better on a cloudy day.

Steep. And on a cold day it's rough at the top. But it was worth it.

Fue una experiencia increíble, muy regresaré y llévate un grupo de amigos.

hard but beautiful. We went all the way around once we made it to the peak

Strenuous hike but nothing special about the scenery. I don't think it's worth traveling more than an hr for this hike, if you live far from there. I went after it rained, super muddy. so don't wear running shoes if you don't want mud all over your sneakers. hiking boots for mud

Talk about an intense climb. Your heart will start pumping right away as it's all uphill with few flat areas. Once your at the top though it's just another big push up a steep, short incline and then a climb up the rocky top and then you're there. It's truly satisfying. The walk back puts another beating on your legs as it is all downhill. But once your done and look back at the peak from you're car you see just how far and how high you really can go.

This is really a great hike with beautiful views. You can watch cows on the farm while hiking. I would say this is more than moderate with regards to difficulty level but definitely worth it. No gear necessary except for water and food.

Heavily trafficked!

A great workout, steep incline, scene is ok but work able, the fun picture at the top is a fun great way to finish :)

Constant elevation. No cover. Best to do early morning. Great views from the summit.

Challenging and steeper at the top. Serene and peaceful at the summit.
I would recommend to hike early in the morning during spring.

Amazing views of the Bay. This hike is very popular, and there may even be a line to take pictures with the pole at the summit. There is no shade on most of the trail, so avoid it on hot days. The best time to go is the in spring when the hills are green.

The trail is challenging. Other then the breathtaking view of the Bay Area at your back on the way up there isn't much too look at. Most people hike up one side and down the same side. I suggest you continue and go down the other side of the mountain. There is far less people going down the side. I saw three people the entire hike down. On the way up I probably saw at least a hundred people.
