Mission Peak offers views of the entire bay area, from San Francisco to Mount Tamalpais. If you look north you will see the Mount Diablo as well as Livermore and San Ramon Valleys. To the south one sees Mount Hamilton and the Diablo Range. Southwest overlooks San Jose, Silicon Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
