Re: “Popular Fremont Hiking Spot for Selfies Prompts Parking Lot on Sacred Land

Spurred by a fad of selfie-snapping atop Mission Peak — which offers a world-at-your feet view of Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay — usage of the one-mile trail to the summit has grown exponentially in recent years.

First of all get your facts straight. This not a case exponential growth. There has been very constant number of visitors for the last three years. It's a 3.1 mile hike not one-mile. It is also a 2100 ft. climb. The reason people go up there is because it is an accomplishment. Mission Peak is part of an eclectic park system all bay area residents can enjoy. Imagine closing a park because it has become popular. That's ridiculous and in opposition to the stated goals of East Bay Regional Parks.
