If Fido is looking to get an amazing hike in with a breathtaking view,  head over to the Mission Peak Regional Park. This mountain hike is about 3-miles total in length with a steep elevation climb of 2004-feet. While hiking, Fido needs to stay on a leash, especially since the park often has wildlife roaming around like cattle and coyotes. When you reach the summit, you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of the Bay Area, plus there is an awesome totem pole to take a picture with. Make sure to bring plenty of water since it does get hot on the hike, and be aware that there isn't any shade on the mountain while hiking up.
