9.9miles

9.9 miles one-way; car shuttle possible

DIFFICULTY: Difficult

From: Ohlone College in Fremont

To: Sandy Wool Lake in Milpitas

Climb through high grasslands past three lofty peaks that top a rugged ridgeline. You have views of rippling hills, tree-filled canyons, and bayshore marshlands from these exposed and often windy trails. You encounter some very steep segments in the final 4-mile descent to a pretty lake in a quiet valley. The side trip to Mission Peak’s summit is on a narrow, steep, and rocky trail; expect to see many people on their way to and from Mission Peak. Get an early start to do the climb before the day warms.

Elevation Gain/Loss 2,190 feet/2,030 feet one-way
