An absolute jewel of a summit. Fog rolled into the canyon and created the illusion of primeval wilderness all around, save for the occasional car motor echoing up the walls. Views south to Pendleton and Palomar were excellent. Perfect hike for when the high country is snowbound... it's too hot up here in summer, anyway.

Saw Sarah's entry in the log... great day!
Great hike, warm day! Visiting my friend Annette in Mission Viejo, I picked this hike for our Saturday outing. Great views, lizards everywhere, blazing hot sun, great company. Hwy 74 / Ortega Highway looks like a fine place to cruise the Harley one day!
Nice morning hike. Took Bear Ridge there and came back through the canyon. Added Boy Scout Peak also and disturbed a rattlesnake on that summit. That always gets the blood pumping!
With gimpilator. Coincidentally we planned on hiking the same peak.
Along with Boy Scout Peak.
Hiked with my son Kevin and friend John on a nice trail to the peak. Nice views from top.
Climbed after a quick hike to the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness Highpoint earlier in the day. I accidentally climbed Boy Scout Peak first because someone had turned the trail sign near Sitton Peak to point to Boy Scout Peak instead. Since I wasn't paying attention to my map and just following the signs, I got to the top and immediately knew something wasn't right since I wasn't on the highest point around. Not a big deal since it was a short side trip. I fixed the sign when I got back down to it and continued on to Sitton without incident. The trail to Sitton after you leave the road is steep!
