This is a very popular park, particularly on weekends with hundreds of visitors hiking to the peak. About 5 hours are required to reach the summit and return. Mission Peak's 3,000+ acres are accessible from parking lots at Ohlone College (more gradual ascent; plenty of parking on weekends) or from a small staging area at the east end of Stanford Avenue in Fremont (steep climb to the summit; extremely congested in parking lot on weekends). There is no access from Mill Creek Road.
East end of Stanford Avenue, off Mission Blvd. Fremont CA
