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.

This trail is within 10 minutes of my boyfriend's parent's house, and we do it almost every time we visit them to get a good workout in. It's definitely a good uphill challenge, and be sure to bring plenty of water if you're doing it in the summer - the sun is not forgiving and there is very little cover on this trail. Pretty extensive views of the surrounding suburbs/bay area/rolling hills behind from the very top. If you're in the Fremont area and don't have the time to commit to 1+ hour drives to get to some of the larger national/state parks, this is definitely worth hiking!

Great, challenging trail, but way too many people. Padt od the reason i like to hike is to escape nature, but its hard to do that here when entitled IT people endlessly ramble up and down the trail.
