From below, Sitton Peak—a bump atop the rambling Santa Ana Mountains— looks imposing. On the summit, though, you feel decidedly on top of the world. When an east or north wind blows, cleansing the sky of water vapor and air pollution, 50-mile vistas in every direction are not uncommon. You must get a wilderness permit to camp overnight within the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness that encompasses most of this hike.

Head up the Bear Canyon Trail which climbs through the San Mateo Wilderness, a mixture of beautiful brush-strewn hillsides, streams, rolling lands nestled between coastal canyons, and old crisscrossed truck roads. The route ascends through low-lying coastal chaparral and meadows, passes a wonderfully wooded oak glen called Pigeon Springs, and eventually meets up with an intersection of trails called Four Corners before turning to ascend Sitton Peak.

From below, Sitton Peak looks unimposing— a mere bump on a rambling ridge—despite its distinction as one of the highest points in the Santa Ana Mountains south of Ortega Highway.

On the summit, though, the feeling is decidedly “top of the world.” When an east or north wind blows, cleansing the sky of water vapor and air pollution, vistas may extend 50 miles or more in every direction.
