Mission Point


The trail to Mission Point trail is dedicated to Dr. Mario A. DeCampos who was a well-known family doctor in the area and the stone memorial at the peak is dedicated to him.

Try this hike after a rainstorm and you will be rewarded aplenty as the Sulphur Spring Fire Road meanders along the northeastern rim of the San Fernando Valley. You will be following a well maintained fire road that climbs steadily up to a little grove of four oak trees just below the summit of Mission Peak. This is a great spot to have a snack before making the final ascent. There are two ways to go up: you can follow the obvious steep trail on the eastern side or you can keep following the fire road around the next bend to the left and then up a another moderate trail to the left again.
