Breakdown of Region

Hey everyone! Thanks again for taking the time to check out my blog πŸ“. I really appreciate it. I’m back again this week to share you my experience while Sitton Peak. This will be my 2nd hike of the year, as well as the 2nd hike from the So-Cal Pack of Peaks Challenge. So I’m inching closer in completing the challenge before summer arrives which is definitely how I wanted to start off the year. Now let’s get straight away into discussing this hike.

Sitton Peak ⛰️ is located near Lake Elsinore, California inside the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness. There are a ton of trails within the forest, which the region is called the Cleveland National Forest. There are three districts in the Cleveland National Forest. They are called Trabuco Ranger District, Palomar Ranger District, and Descanso Ranger District. Sitton Peak is located inside the Trabuco Ranger District, so this is the area in which we will focus today.

Sitton Peak

Sitton Peak ⛰️ is about 9.2 miles in total walking distance. Again the number includes the hike to the peak and the hike back down. So half of that distance is just the walk from the starting point to the top. To put that into terms, last week I finished Strawberry Peak. That hike was about 8 miles in total distance. So Sitton Peak runs a bit longer than Strawberry Peak. Both are very similar in that I would recommend these two as a good starting point for beginners.

Unlike Strawberry Peak, the elevation is only πŸ”3,273 ft. above sea level and the chances of seeing snow are pretty slim. To be honest, I don’t think 3,000 ft. is suitable enough for snow. So I’m only guessing. But the weather on my hike was mostly cloudy, with some fog along the way. As noon approached, the sky began to clear up.

The trail conditions for the most part are pretty dry. I didn’t wear my hiking boots πŸ₯Ύ during this hike, but I wish I did because the trail becomes slippery towards the end. And I found myself slipping a couple of times during the steepest part of this hike. I wore my tennis shoes for this one, but again that was a mistake. So if you happen to have a pair, you should wear them. If you don’t have hiking boots and decide to use other shoes, just be careful with your footing. It will only come into play during the last mile.

For the most part, the first couple of miles are a little bit steep. But nothing too crazy. There were no problems and I made good pace once I arrived at the middle stretch. The middle stretch (as I like to call it) is the long distance of walk before arriving to the 4 corners saddle. More on that below.

The last mile of this hike is the steepest. It’s where I had trouble with my footing, as mentioned earlier. And I caught myself slipping to my feet on the way back down. So proper footwear really come into play here.

The trail is filled with mountain views. You’ll come across all kinds of outdoor scenery 🌲, which is capped off with an amazing view of the Santa Ana mountains. On a clear day, you’ll be able to spot the ocean 🌊 near Orange County and even Catalina Island. Because of the fog, I wasn’t able to spot it. But looking at pictures on Instagram, I’m excited to come back on a clearer day in order to see it πŸ“Έ.

Mini-Guide

The trailhead I started is called San Juan Loop, off the Ortega Hwy. Once you get closer to the trailhead, parking is on the right side of the road. Parking on this trailhead does require a parking pass / Adventure pass 🎟️. There is a small shop across the street called Ortega Oaks Candy & Goods store 🍬, where you can purchase a parking pass. I didn’t get the chance to walk in and see the store for myself, but they do sell parking passes. They usually run for $5. You can also find passes in various vendor locations throughout California. I have more information regarding where to buy them at the end of this post.

Address:πŸ“34950 CA-74, Lake Elsinore, CA 92530

I arrived at the trailhead sometime around 9am β›…. I usually shoot for 7am whenever I decide on a hike. But since I live pretty close to Lake Elsinore, I’d figure a 9am arrival would be just fine since this hike only takes around 4 – 5 hours. Just depends on how fast you finish hikes. I usually go at a faster pace. But like I always mention, arriving early helps beat the traffic 🚘 in case parking gets full. Parking for me was no problem. There was plenty of parking and open spaces. So I don’t see any issues when you arrive at the trailhead.

Once you find parking and have all you gear ready to go, the starting point is just ahead past the road. Please be careful when crossing the road. You are looking for a Bear Canyon Trailhead sign. This is the starting point for Sitton Peak ⛰️. Just walk towards that direction and follow the trail.

As you continue on the trail, you will evantually come to another sign with information about the trail. Please take the time to read the information, so you are always aware of your surroundings. There is a sign that mentions rattlesnakes 🐍, but I’d be surprised if you spot one during the cooler months of the year.

As you walk along the trail, give yourself the chance to enjoy the scenery🌲 around you. You’ll notice there is a lot to see. The branches of the trees are pretty narrow along the trail. The walkway itself is just a little steep, but nothing you shouldn’t handle.

After 1 mile of walking, you will come across the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness sign πŸ›‘, as seen below. Just continue to the right of that sign. If you feel lost, I highly recommend downloading the Alltrails phone app πŸ“± before you being your hike. Again, this has helped me with directions during all my hikes. And it would help you too.

More to see as you walk along the trail. Again, perfect for taking more pictures πŸ˜ƒ πŸ“Έ .

After a little bit of more walking, you will come across a pathway with different directions to turn. Here, you are looking for the Sitton Peak ⛰️ stick that is to your right. Once you spot the stick, just follow along the path on the right direction. See pictures below for an example πŸ‘‡.

The next stop on the trail is another pathway that offers different directions to take, depending on which mountain you are trying to reach. When you arrive at this area, you want to look for the “Bear Canyon Trail to 4 Corners” stick πŸ›‘. It’s going to be on your right direction when you approach the pathway. Once you spot the sign, just follow the trail to the right.

More pictures to take πŸ“Έ. Don’t forget to tag us on any pictures you’ve taken πŸ‘‰ @seekingmytravels. Continue walking along the path to 4 corners.

Now you have arrived to 4 corners. Each direction taking you to another mountain along the their trails. As you approach 4 corners, your path will be in the right πŸ‘‰ direction. See pictures below.

Once you spot the Sitton Peak ⛰️ stick, the trail leads you directly to the peak. Only 1.7 miles 🀞 left to go. Almost there.

From here, just follow the trail. You will come across another stick πŸ›‘ on the ground that tells you the distance you have left before reaching Sitton Peak ⛰️. But as you continue the turns and steep trail, you are only getting closer to the finish line 🏁. Here are pictures below.

The very last direction to turn is when you reach this sign again. As you approach it, just head πŸ‘‰ right. This is the steepest part of the hike βœ‹. So please be careful. I slipped a few times to my hands because I wasn’t wearing the proper footwear. Again, I recommend wearing hiking boots πŸ₯Ύ for this particular occasion.

Here, you are finally within reach of Sitton Peak ⛰️ as you reach the top of the mountain. The views from the top are incredible! You will find a Sitton Peak sign for pictures πŸ“Έ and have front row seats to the Santa Ana Mountains. Don’t forget to tag us along the way on Instagram. We have stickers to give out πŸ˜ƒ.

Strawberry Peak πŸ“

Strawberry Peak


General Information

Distance: 7 Miles

Time: 3-4 Hours in total

Difficulty: Moderate (Good hike to try for 1st timers)

Elevation: 6,165 ft

Permit Required

Pet Friendly

Location: Angeles National Forest


My Thoughts

So let’s begin with my overall thoughts of Strawberry Peak. It’s a 3 – 4 mile hike that offers a ton of scenic views. The mountain hill that leads you up to the peak definitely had me stopping a few times to catch my breath. Now keep in mind, I’m currently not in my best shape, so having a couple of breathers was something I should have expected. And I’m guessing some of you will be in the same scenario if this is your first go at a hike

But nevertheless, I made it to the top and enjoyed being up there. It has everything I look for in a good hike. The views are really cool to see with a ton of photo opportunities from the surrounding landscape. Strawberry Peak is also not too far from Los Angeles, so you’ll be able to spot the Downtown skyscrapers from a distance. There are also peak signs that you’ll usually find from other peaks in our local national forests. They are a great way to celebrate a successful hike and share your experiences on social media. Just like did. I posted mine on our Instagram page, @seekingmytravels. So be sure to give me a follow and check out my content.

Strawberry Peak in general is roughly 4 miles in total distance from the trailhead to the very top of the mountain. In total, you’re looking at roughly a 8 mile day. The hike probably took me around 4 hours to complete, which is pretty short compared to other hikes I’ve done in the San Gabriel Mountains (Ontario Peak, Cucamonga Peak, etc. Just to name a few). Those peaks ran me anywhere from 7 – 8 miles in total. So definitely shouldn’t take you too long. If you happen to begin your hike around 7am, you should be back down around 3pm.

Parking

The trailhead I started was called Red Box Picnic Area, off the Angeles Crest Hwy. There is parking on the right side off the highway and does require a parking pass. You can find parking passes before you enter the highway from various vendors within the cities. You actually find a list of vendors online. I have a link at the end of the post below. I purchased my annual pass from REI and it costed me around $30. You can use this parking pass in various trailheads throughout California when you visiting National Forests.

Address: Forest Rte 2N24, Palmdale, CA 93550

Recently, the Red Box trailhead was closed due to the recent fires in the summer. However parking is now open. I advise you arrive early before parking begins to fill. Probably around 6am – 7am in my opinion. That way you’ll have enough time to find a parking spot and gather your gear before walking to the starting point.

I arrived at the trailhead around 7:30am. Parking was pretty empty. However as I came back from Strawberry Peak, parking was completely full. So I always recommend arriving early to any trailhead you go to. Especially during this Covid era because I expect that more people are trying to find ways to leave their homes and find activities to do.

Once you find parking, gathered your gear, and are ready to go, the starting point is just ahead of parking.

I don’t have much pictures for directions, nor did I planned for anything like that in general. What I did use was this app called “Alltrails” to help guide me. It’s very useful for me and I use it for every hike I do. It helps me stay on the trail and leads me to the correction direction. I’ll have more information on the app at the end of this post.

As far as distance goes, this didn’t feel like a very long hike. Those first 3 miles felt like a breeze and wasn’t too much on the legs either.

Once you arrive at mile #2, the trail is pretty much straight forward. You follow the path along a mountain that takes you to Strawberry Peak. During the walk along, you feel like you’re at the edge of the mountains. Don’t worry though, there’s plenty of room to walk. I would say these are the best views to take in, other than the peak itself.

Within the distance, you can also spot Mt. Wilson on one of the mountains. The way I was able to tell was the two white observatories. As soon as I saw that, I knew it was Mt. Wilson. More on Mt. Wilson hike in the near future.

Another great treat along the trail is ability to spot Downtown Los Angeles. The skyscrapers are visible from the angle in which you hike along the trail and you’ll be able to see the ocean as well. It becomes easier to see LA once you reach the top of the mountain. But either way, it was pretty cool sight to see and a moment to stop for some pictures.

As you approach mile #3, this is probably the difficult part of the hike. While I do say it’s a bit difficult, It’s still manageable enough for those who are justing starting. I took a friend to come along with me during this hike and she was able to hike up the steep mountain without any issues. Especially in the snow. I would imagine it’s easier to hike during the summer time than the winter time as you can get better traction on the ground with your hiking boots. But sometimes the snow can be an enemy. In a way that the terrain becomes slippery without proper footwear. I have more on that towards the end of the post below.

This is why I highly recommend wearing hiking boots, opposed to wearing tennis or running shoes. The trail on Cucamonga Peak will become very rocky at certain points of the hike. So wearing shoes that will protect your feet during a 6 mile hike will come in handy. If Cucamonga Peak is the very first hike your diving into, that’s fine, but understand that you should come prepared. Making sure you bring the necessary gear and supplies that will help make this hike worth it. I will list everything that I used below.

Either way I’m confident just about everyone can push up the mountain around mile #3.

Once you’re at mile #4, you should be at the peak. From here, enjoy the 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains. You’ll find two Strawberry Peak wooden signs. Which are perfect for pictures. If this was your first hike overall, welcome to the club! If this was your first hike of this years So-Cal Six Pack of Peaks challenge, your just getting started. And if you’re still wondering where to hike within Southern California, this may be the perfect start.

I mention the So-Cal Six Packs of Peaks challenge quite often. And that’s because I use it as a way to motivate me. If you aren’t too familiar with the So-Cal Six Pack of Peaks challenge, I highly recommend that you check out their Instagram page and/or website. It’s a challenge that consists of nine peaks overall. You choose any of the nine from the list. All you have to do is complete six. After you complete your six hikes, you receive a finisher prize at the end. The purpose of this challenge is to motivate you throughout the year to stay on course and get you hiking. It helped me with my ambitions and it continues to motivate me each week to find a new hike to do.

2021 has just begun and I want to start of the year right with a lot more hikes under my belt. With so much uncertainty in today’s climate, motivating myself to stay fit and enjoy the things I love to do is going to be a priority in 2021. That’s the mindset I’m taking with my blog. And Strawberry Peak is just the first stepping stone. I haven’t hiked all that much during 2020, especially during these uncertain times. But I don’t want to use that as an excuse. So 2021 is when I get back on the trails and sharing you my experiences from each hike. And trust me, there’s a ton of them.

My Gear:

As I mentioned earlier, here is a list of all the things I brought during my hike. In case you needed any idea on what to bring for a hike like this.

I made sure I had plenty of water. The last thing you’ll ever want is to be short of water. I brought food & snacks, including my own lunch. I purchased all my food from Walmart before driving to the trailhead parking area. For snowy conditions during this hike, I didn’t use crampons. But I would probably recommend wearing a pair. The snowy terrain can be slippery so crampons can help gain traction through each step. The items below is just what I needed for my day.

  • REI Co-op Ruckpack 28 Pack (REI)
  • Talus Tek UltraDry Hiking Boots (REI)

I usually start my mornings with some daily readings and staying on top of the current news. I have a few publications that I go to for my daily reading but most of them I find on Apple News. At times, there are articles I come across in which I feel would be beneficial for the outdoor/travel community. Especially for topics that is relevant within our community. Therefore, I wanted to give myself the ability to share these articles on my travel blog.

I want to make this very clear. I am in no way taking credit for these articles. I will give full credit to any publications and writers/authors for these news information, as I will do with every post I apply on my blog. My only goal is just to provide insightful information that I feel all of you would enjoy.

This article discusses the 10 best trails in California. Some of them I’ve actually written down on my wish list for trails to try. This article is written from Lonelyplanet.com. Go check out their website to find more places to travel.

Cucamonga Peak – Gallery

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to share more pictures of my hike to Cucamonga Peak. I didn’t want to upload all of my pictures onto my previous blog post and figured I can make this a separate post. So here it is. Hope you enjoy!

(Each hiking trip I take will include a full gallery of all my pictures in a separate post.)

Hike #1 – Cucamonga Peak

Cucamonga Peak Hike


General Information

Distance: 12 Miles

Time: 6-7 Hours

Difficulty: Hard

Elevation: 8,862 ft

Permit Required

Pet Friendly

Location: Cucamonga Wilderness in San Bernardino National Forest.


My Thoughts

Cucamonga Peak is hands down one of my favorite hikes in the Inland Empire thus far. Granted, I’ve only completed a couple of the big known hikes for the past year, so I don’t have a ton of hikes under my belt just yet. But one thing is for certain, you can’t beat the views once you’ve ascended Cucamonga Peak. Every time I go up there, I’m always taken back on everything that I’m seeing. Cities like Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Corona, Riverside, Jurupa Valley, and even the sky-scrappers in downtown Los Angeles are all in your view. So this peak is definitely one that I recommend for all to try.

This peak finishes at a total distance of 12 miles. Which is broken down to 6 miles up the peak and then another 6 miles back down. So don’t let the 12 mile number discourage you from even trying this hike. It may seem daunting, but I promise you it’s not the worst thing in the world. Take into account that when I first did this peak last year, this was the very first hike I’ve ever done. Apart from hiking the Bridge to Nowhere, which isn’t even close to the elevation gain as this one, I too was able to complete this on my very first try. So If I was able to do this, I know you can too.

So let’s go straight to my thoughts on the hike. I loved it! Short and simple. If you’re looking to get away from those dirt trails near your backyard or just want a change of scenery, then I believe the Cucamonga Peak hike is for you. It has just about everything on what you would want to look for into a hike. It’s a hike that is surrounded inside the San Bernardino National Forest, which means lots of outdoor scenery, the wilderness, the trees, leaves, mountains, etc. It has it all.

There’s a bunch of stuff to see. You’ll come across cabin homes reminding you of the great outdoors located in our area. You’ll also come across a couple of chimney structures, or at-least what’s left of it, which signifies the past and what is left. (More pictures on those chimney structures below!). As you continue hiking the trail, there will be tons of opportunities to see the mountains across the Cucamonga Wilderness. Below is a quick video of the vast landscape.

The trail is a bit rocky once you reach mile #5. This is where I highly recommend wearing hiking boots. They will protect your feet and help avoid any major injuries. This hike can creep up on you physically. At least for those who are just starting out. And what I mean by that is the physical toll it can take on your body if you haven’t hiked all that much, if not at all. Especially on your legs/feet. When I first hiked up Cucamonga Peak back in 2019, I made the mistake of hiking up the peak with Nike running shoes. I regret looking back at it now. My feet were pretty sore for the next couple days and I remember limping all day at work. It sucked! It took a couple of days for the inflammation to go down but I couldn’t put much weight on my feet at the time.

This is why I highly recommend wearing hiking boots, opposed to wearing tennis or running shoes. The trail on Cucamonga Peak will become very rocky at certain points of the hike. So wearing shoes that will protect your feet during a 6 mile hike will come in handy. If Cucamonga Peak is the very first hike your diving into, that’s fine, but understand that you should come prepared. Making sure you bring the necessary gear and supplies that will help make this hike worth it. I will list everything that I used below.

I do believe that even beginners can push through to the top. And while I’m ranking this hike as a difficult one, If you’re someone who keeps yourself in shape then I believe you will be fine. However, if you’re someone who isn’t physically active, then I definitely recommend some smaller hikes before diving into this one.

Mini-Guide:

I began the hike by arriving at Ice House Canyon Trailhead around 8am. Which meant I was up early in the morning to make sure I had all my materials ready. The parking lot at Ice House Canyon does require an Adventure Pass for parking. Those cited without a pass can receive a ticket. Not 100% sure how much that will cost you. But Adventure Day Passes cost $5 for a single day use or you can purchase a yearly Adventure Pass which will cost you $30.

Information on where to purchase Adventure Passes

Yearly Pass: https://www.rei.com/product/810592/southern-california-annual-forest-adventure-pass

Once you’ve become settled in and ready to begin the hike, the trail is just ahead where you’ll find the information board regarding the area and the trail. Here is where you will find the permits which are required for this trail. Fill one out and place inside the post as directed. You keep one copy to yourself and an extra copy in the post. Once you have it all completed, you are ready to begin. The picture below is what you’re looking for once you head towards the start of the trail.

During your first mile, you will come across the cabin homes as I’ve mentioned at the top. There are plenty of them so please be mindful as your walking on the trail.

Here are more of those broken down chimney structures. They are pretty cool to be honest and I took some time to explore and investigate what may have happened in the past.

At the end of mile #1, you will come across this sign. This is your first mile mark. Just continue straight ahead. The trail continues up ahead.

As you approach the end of mile #2, the landscape begins to change. You will soon see this sign below which officially welcomes you to the Cucamonga Wilderness.

Mile 2 & 3 is where you begin to ascend up the mountains as you get closer to the halfway point of the hike. It does become more rocky at this point, so please come prepared!

As you approach near the 3 mile mark, you will come across this sign below. You want to head on right side towards Ice House Saddle. On the right, you should see the trail continue to ascend. This will take you to Ice House Saddle. Head that direction. Just up the distance, you will be at the halfway point.

Once you have arrived at the Ice House Saddle, you will notice 4-5 different signs. They all point you in different directions, depending on which peak you are hiking. We are looking for the Cucamonga Peak Trail sign which is just up ahead. Here is a picture of the sign below. Just follow the trail in the direction which the sign is pointing and this will take you to the peak.

As you continue on the Cucamonga Peak trail, this is one of the highlights of the hike overall. You’ll have an amazing view of the mountains from a great position. Perfect for pictures πŸ˜‰

Lastly, you have finally made it to the top of Cucamonga Peak at the 6 mile mark! Amazing job! There you will find a Cucamonga Peak wooden sign. Perfect for taking pictures. Don’t forget to tag us @seekingmytravels on Instagram if you do :). And of course, you have a front row seat to the view of the Inland Empire!

As I mentioned earlier, here is a list of all the things I brought during my hike. In case you needed any idea on what to bring for a hike like this.

I made sure I had plenty of water. The last thing you’ll ever want is to be short of water. I brought food & snacks, including my own lunch. I purchased all my food from Walmart before driving to the trailhead parking area. The items below is just what I needed for my day.

New logo!

Today, I’m very excited to finally share with you our new logo for Seeking My Travels! It’s something I’ve been working on for the past month, alongside Kory Miller and his team at Park St. Studio. Once I was able to get my hands on the logo, I couldn’t tell you how excited I was to finally share this news with the rest of you. I loved the final design of the logo and how it all turned out. I believe the logo speaks to what my vision is for this travel page. And that’s being centered towards the outdoor experience and encouraging all of you to see its beauty.

The outdoors is a big part of what we do and is ingrained into our mission. And I felt it was important to reflect that mission onto our logo. I say this a lot, but one of the biggest reasons why I started this travel page was that I wanted to inspire others to venture out beyond the comfort of their homes. And that meant showing the places and activities that I felt were within our grasp. Places that anyone can enjoy and our logo provides just a glimpse.

Of course, Seeking My Travels isn’t only about the outdoor experience. I seek to provide other content like Travel & Leisure, which will be another category I’ll dive into in the near future. But for now, we will focus primarily on content tailored towards the outdoor community.

As I mentioned above, our logo was precisely crafted by the ever talented Kory Miller and his team at Park St. Studio! Park St. Studio specializes in logo design, alongside other services that include brand development, brand strategy, merchandise design, and packaging/labeling. Kory was instrumental in bringing our logo to life and I couldn’t thank him anymore for his delicate work on making this thing happen. Below are just some examples of his work. You can click on his Instagram profile below in case you have any interest in his work.
