North Fortuna Peak

North Fortuna Peak hike

North Fortuna Peak is the third highest peak in Mission Trails Regional Park, behind Pyles Peak and Cowles Mountain. This is a fun hike and an easy extension when hiking to South Fortuna Peak via the same route. There’s more than one way to reach the summit of North Fortuna Peak, but South Fortuna Trail is by far my favorite.

Note: The hiking distance and time estimates are based on a round trip hike following the South Fortuna Trail route from the trailhead. There are a variety of options available for hiking out and back, so your actual distance and time may vary accordingly.
