Now in it’s 6th year, the SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge helps you flex your adventure muscles. Our group has chosen six peaks for this year and they include:
SITTON PEAK – Elevation 3,273′ (998m)
At an elevation of 3,273 feet is the lowest peak of the dozen, but conveniently close for Orange, Riverside and San Diego County residents. It’s roughly 10 miles with over 2,100 feet of vertical gain to the summit.

#2 hike completed on Feb 2nd, 2020!
It’s shaping up to be an amazing year!
MOUNT WILSON – Elevation 5,713′ (1,741 m)
Mount Wilson can be hiked or backpacked year-round, and rarely gets dusted with snowfall. The summit is home to a cluster of telescopes that are still in use today, including the 100-year old, 100-inch Hooker telescope where Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe extended well beyond the Milky Way, and was in fact expanding.
Original Six-Pack route: Chantry Flats up Sturtevant Trail, down Winter Creek
