Ohlone College Multistory Parking Garage | 43600 Mission Blvd., Fremont, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Moonlight hike from Ohlone College to the Mission Peak summit on the Peak Trail. Headlamps or flashlights recommended for short sections of the trail but the objective is to enjoy hiking in the moonlight with no or very limited artificial illumination.
Level: Moderate ++ (2C) Not a beginner’s hike as this hike will be difficult for new hikers, hikers out of shape or those with phobias about hiking at night.
The group will stop on a regular basis but must complete the hike by 10 pm when the park closes. This means we have 3.5 hours to complete a 7 mile hike with significant elevation gain. If you are unsure about your physical condition, please hike another day where the time required to complete the hike is not an issue. Exiting the park after 10 pm can lead to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing by EBRPD.
Free but an RSVP is required.
Bring: Two liters of water, lamp, snack, layered clothing, and enthusiasm. Recommend well-fitting boots for traction and ankle support. Hiking poles may be helpful.
