"Mission Peak Regional Park is Awesome."
At the corner of Stanford and Vineyard Ave. you'll find one of my favorite parks in the Bay area, Mission Peak Regional Park. This park has several hiking options but the best it to hike to the peak itself. This hike is not easy or hard but it is somewhat testing. Two problems are that the lack of trees means that it is hot in the park and on the trail and the fact that there are some snakes hanging around the park. All problems aside the view from the peak is worth the trouble.
