Sitton Peak

Trailhead: Sitton Peak Truck Trail, Lake Elsinore, CA 92530
Length: 10 miles
Elevation Gain: 2200 ft.
Difficulty: Moderate
Total time: 4-5 hours
Dogs: Yes
Parking: Parking lot across the highway from the trailhead (and across from the candy store!)

Sitton Peak is a relatively easy hike that then tries to destroy you at the last .25 miles. At almost 10 miles total, the slope is fairly gentle for most of the climb with many stretches of flat spots to catch your breath. You will meander through nice, shaded areas filled with flora and fauna (not sure what fauna is)

Once you get to the turn off for the last quarter of a mile to the peak, however, you’re going to need to mountain goat your way up that bad boy to get to the top.

The peak offers 360 views of the area AND as a bonus, has a sign that you can take a picture next to and later caption “Standin’ on Sitton Peak, hahahahahahaha.”

Okay, now I am going to let you in on some super secret insider information: Sitton Peak is pronounced Sit-ton Peak, as we were informed by a snarky local when we asked for directions.

Pronounce it right, and no one will be able to tell you’re not a native.

You. Are. Welcome!
