Happy New Year to my SoCal Hikers. In Jan 4, 2020 I solo hiked up to Sitton Peak. To my surprise, I wasn't alone at all. Many hikers hiked up to Sitton Peak like I did. It was very crowded up there. But I loved the company. I wished everyone a healthy, happy New Year.
The weather and views were stunning. I got a great view of the mountains, canyons and the Ortega highway. The trail was a little damp but it was firm to hike. Since it still winter, there were much flowers. I saw a whole lot of wild berries and moss. There was a couple who rode their horses on the trail.
Although Sitton Peak is the lowest of all the Peak Challenge hikes, it does give you a good workout. The last stretch to the Peak will wind you out if you are over eager to summit it. I love doing this Peak hike and it's my yearly tradition to visit Sitton once a year around tjis time.
