    Did this mid August. Trail was extremely overgrown. View at the top was incredible. But he warned, this hike is difficult. Seemed like an eternity of false peaks just going up and then right back down. Actual climbing increase is much larger than just the elevation difference due to that

    Nice. We went counter clockwise. It was shady more often than not. Fire road on the way down was hard on toes and knees. We went around 9:30am and it was about 85.

    Beautiful early morning with nice breezes to offset the rising temperatures. Started at 6am. Didn’t see a soul until the northern end of the Sunset Trail when it joined the Big Laguna Trail. Loved walking southbound on the east side of the lake - nice intermittent shade and great views. Forgot to start recording at the beginning.

    Hiked down late morning to midday it was hot but a pleasant breeze. The meadows at the end are beautiful. No water in the creek. I was hoping to filter some water there however... we carried a lot of water but may have to hike out early without a refill...update! We found 2 hidden,beautiful flowing pools! Plenty of water, total solitude, great three day adventure for my kid’s first backpacking trip. They didn’t want to leave. Broke camp early on the last day left before 7am and we’re at the top by 9:30 to beat the heat. It was great!

    There were a lot of bugs during this walk even after I used the spray. Shade did not last, most of the day we were exposed. There were nice views at the top. Show me register was missing although I found the log register by 20 feet away under a bush exposed, no container. I put it in a baggie and put it under the signs, I hope someone brings a replacement logged in container on a future trip.

    Lovely. Tons of water available for filtering as the trail follows a creek for several miles. Great scenery on the ridge. Lots of mountain bikers but it was no trouble.

    Due to COVID-19, this trip got delayed for a couple of months, but I still wanted to get it in. Note to self: don't do this type of trip this late in the season. It was brutally hot--85 degrees at the trailhead at 9AM, and the bugs were atrocious. The biting flies were swarming me most of the hike, and as I got closer to High Point, the gnats were constantly swarming around my face. The flies were so bad, at the tower, that the ranger came out to greet me when I arrived, but even he couldn't stand to be outside of the glassed in booth for long. There were beautiful wildflowers blooming all along the trail, and the view of Palomar observatory was really cool. I'm sure this would have been a fantastic hike a couple of months ago, but I would never attempt it at this time of year again. Oh, by the way, the temperature at the trailhead, when I returned to base, was 95 degrees. Ouch!

    Short segment to top of Gaskill was a little overgrown. As long as we followed trail, scramble not too bad. Need to follow track carefully near top or scramble becomes a little more challenging. Definitely plan on repeating on a clear day. Love the views. And the little Martian peeking out from the top boulder. We did the southern approach as another review said that the western approach was more overgrown & required more scramble.

    Great trail and pretty! Last .9 was quite an incline to summit but I didn’t think it was too bad. Great views of the ocean and Catalina at the summit. People mentioned bugs. There were bugs but not bad. March 3,2020. The trailhead is across the street from parking. Same side as candy shop where you can also buy an adventure pass if you need one. As well as a sandwich when you come back down (Candy shop also makes sandwiches).

    With some of the higher Santa Ana peaks closed due to the recent fires Sitton Peak is a decent alternative. I have hiked this trail in the hot and cooler months and I recommend doing this hike during the fall or winter months. Not only can it be hot but the bugs can be an annoyance during the warmer time of year. The hike is pretty covered until you get to 4 corners. From there the trail is more exposed for the remaining 2 miles to the peak. However, you will be gifted with some great views of the southern part of the Santa Ana mountain range as well as the San Gregorio mountain range which if snow peaked make the views even more memorable. The last quarter of a mile is a scramble but the final view at the peak is well worth it. A bit of back history, a helicopter crash landed on the face of Sitton Peak and if you look closely enough you will still find remnants of the helicopter. If you are in modest shape this hike will be challenging at points but definitely doable. However if you do it on a hot day the hike becomes much harder. All in all the hike is a nice day hike and if your goals are set to do peaks like Baldy or Whitney this hike can help you determine your current physical and mental stamina as it has decent mileage and elevation gain to help you attain your ultimate goal.

    Not much scenery on the walk. The walk dawn is far easier than the walk back up. Well worth the trip down to go for a swim. Be mindful of the heat any time after noon in the summer months. Very little shade except the last half mile.

    Nice hike, went on a Friday and saw one other hiker, and about 8 mountain bikers and 3 snakes. My Garmin said 13.3 miles and 2,800 feet elevation gain. Some scrambling to the top of the peak.

    4/27/19. Wonderful hike up to Sugarloaf. Nice overcast in the morning and got hotter as the marine layer burned off. We were treated to great views of all the local mountains. There are two Sugarloafs, you first see two rock cairns denoting the trail to Old Sugarloaf which looks pretty demanding. If you continue about 1 more mile, you get to New Sugarload which is a much easier hike up. I've done the latter and am looking forward to the former another day. Watch out for bikes which use this for a downhill bomb from Blue Jay. Round trip is about 12.6 miles.

    Really great and secluded camp site at the end of the trail. Pretty meadow with a small stream. Lots of open area. There is an 8 mile, mostly dirt road you have to take to the trail head and I would not recommend anyone drive without some reasonable clearance and all wheel drive. However this is probably why the camp site is so nice. Not a lot of people. We only saw two small groups. The trail is moderate with a pack on but downhill so if you plan to leave some weight behind on your way back up you should be fine. Not a lot of shade on the trail. Also be prepared for bugs. A little spray and the insects pretty much kept to themselves. All in all this is an excellent trail and camping area. You will need to contact the Palomar Ranger station for a permit but it’s free.

    This is my favorite way to do Santiago and Modjeska in the same day. I hate the road into Holy Jim, and this route is smooth pavement until Maple Springs Road turns to dirt where you park. From there I climb a trail that I've heard called the "Sierra Club Route to Modjeska Peak" which climbs the ridge crossing Maple Springs Road repeatedly until you reach the main divide road. Heading up the Main Divide Road to the right for 100 yards, you'll see a trail on the left which provides wonderful shade going up to Modjeska Peak. The trail continues and drops back down to the main divide road where you climb up to Santiago. Return via the same route. Great in spring when the wildflowers are out. My main problem is that the first part is a bit overgrown and could use some maintenance as it's a huge deep rut in some places.
