This loop will take you to three of the Mission Trail peaks: North Fortuna Peak, South Fortuna Peak, and Kwaay Paay Peak. The majority of this trail offers minimal shade, and has both steep inclines and steep downhill slopes. Hiking poles might be useful for the steep down hill slopes, especially if taking the trail in the opposite direction as shown. Bathrooms are located near where Oak Park Trail meets the Father Junipero Trail (paved street).
