The ultimate Bay Area peak challenge brings you to the top of the most iconic peaks in the region. Includes the classic peaks of the San Francisco Bay Area, spanning from Mt. St. Helena in the north to Mt. Umunhum and Mt. Sizer in the south. From the most popular peaks (Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo, Mission Peak) to relatively unknown gems (Big Rock Ridge, Rose Peak, Maguire Peaks), this challenge will expose you to the beauty of what the late Galen Rowell called "Bay Area Wild". Note that this challenge only includes peaks with trails open to the public (including Mount Umunhum opened in 2017).
