If you're just hiking the first 3 miles to mission peak, that is a 5 star hike with a great view. But the full 15 mile round trip to the memory tree gets 2 stars.

The good:
- steep inclines and elevation are a good workout
- beautiful view of the South Bay at beginning and end

The bad:
- trail is 99% sun with no shade
- the middle stretch is flat, boring, and dusty with only view of dead grass
- mile 5-7 is littered with cow pies
