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.

Amazing view at the top. Great workout. Strenuous.. but the loose gravel makes it hard at times.

A good workout hike , obviously crowded as it offers amazing views!!

Pretty heavily trafficked trail. If you want a serene walk this is not the trail for you. Tons of hikers brought Bluetooth speakers to play aloud during their hike, at the top there was a line to take photos with the famous pipe thing.

The trail itself is great, a continued gradual steepness throughout with very few plateaus. Once the sun in high in the sky there isn't much shade and can be very hot. Good exercise however.

Make sure bring a wind jacket. It is very cool on the peak.
