Mission Peak Regional Preserve

This preserve has trails that go straight up from sea level to the 2500 foot Mission Peak or to other nearby peaks.  There are a total of 29 miles of trails and 3000 acres with views of the North, South and West Bay. The trails have very little shade so bring water with you.  Most of the trails are very wide and you share them with bicycles, horses, hikers, runners and dogs. There are many cattle grazing near the paths. This park is very popular so if the parking lot is full, you can park on Vineyard Ave. There are restrooms at the entrance to the trail.

Requirements

Dogs must be leashed (six foot or less) at all times.

Operating Hours

6:30 am to dusk.

Disabled Access

This is the tallest peak and steepest trail you can climb in the southern end of the SF Bay. If you want to go all the way to the top, plan for at least 3 hours round trip. The view at the top is worth it. The trail is very popular so in the evenings and on the weekends, plan to park on the street, down the hilll from the park entrance.
