Parking is located directly across the Ortega Oaks Candy Store in the San Juan Loop parking lot. You will need an Adventure Pass ($35 for an annual pass, $5 for a daily pass per vehicle) in order to park in the lot. The Bear Canyon Loop trailhead begins a few yards west of the candy store.

Fun trail for what it is.The miles go by quick up until that final push to the summit. Fair warning, it is steep. You can grab onto the surrounding brush for support or just play it safe and bring poles for the way down. The trail is a little worn but totally manageable and easy to navigate. One complaint, the trail being off Ortega means you will hear motorcycles 90% of the hike. The peak gets crowded with everyone getting their perfect model shot for their gram, but if you bypass them and hike a few minutes further you can still get awesome views of the surrounding mountains, ocean and Catalina. If you need an adventure pass the candy shop across from the parking lot sells them. Also I’m pretty sure this being a National Forest means your America the Beautiful pass should work. I didn’t risk it, I bought a pass for $5 bucks. Also, support the local candy shop and treat yourself to a root beer float, sandwich, candy or just a soda on the way out. Happy trekking.

Excellent hike!! I’m a mediocre hiker, and it wasn’t hard until you get a mile to the peak. A little rockie and smooth clear trails. Recommend to leave early and get an adventure pass for parking.

Really really beautiful view from the top. The last climb was pretty slippery. Be careful coming down, but it was worth it for the view and we had it all to ourselves even on the weekend.

10/15/19 This trail is definitely meant for off-road vehicles or a truck with proper suspension, tires, shocks etc. if your vehicle is not meant for bumpy dirt roads there’s a good chance you will blow a tire or get stuck (there was a truck stuck near the top). It’s super fun to drive through and beautiful scenery at the top! Still nice and green trees and plants. Parts of the trail were closed off. We called park services before hand to find out what was open.

Sitton Peak was lovely and full of solitude. Completed this yesterday afternoon in just under 3 hours. Half run/walk. Didn't even wear my hiking shoes just normal gym shoes. Not huge and the only big incline is at the end, but if you're looking for a peak to bag that isn't too strenuous and not time consuming hit up sitton peak. I had the top to myself and it was glorious and actually a bit chilly!

Technically I did the Bear Canyon Ridge one direction in the middle and enjoyed both sides of the loop, but I wanted to post a review here to provide my impression of the trail which differs from what others have recently had. It was my first time here and I'm glad I didn't let the current reviews scare me off. I think this is a little gem for moderate hiking or trail running. The grades were mild (except last half mile that everyone mentions) and varied. No continuous strain of up or down either direction. The single track trail was pretty and yes, some heavy vegetation on the sides at times but I could always see the trail and where I was stepping. I wore shorts and short sleeve shirt and did not mind some plants brushing on me on the occasions that they did, unless I develop poison oak.  For that reason only, I'd recommend covered arms and legs or make sure to bring wipes/ soap for after the hike just in case. Bugs were not present for me this AM, possibly because it was overcast. Maybe the bugs are fair-weathered pests only. Parking and pit toilets available across the street from the trailhead. Signage on the trail was perfect. Many trail options for future hikes/ runs.

It was raining when we hiked. We didn’t get a view, but it feels like we were in a rainforest. The mist. The clouds. It adds allure to the trail. There are bugs on the trail. We just walked fast. Bring water. I would go back again for the peak view. It took us 3 hrs and 40 mins round trip.

Definitely not my favorite hike. The trail is not maintained very well at all. Very prickly and pointy plants and shrubs you have to pass through poking at your legs and hips, as my friend described, it is like going through a car wash. I would wear thick hiking pants to avoid getting scraped and poked. Definitely bring a bug net, a crapload of gnats waiting to fly into your eyes and ears. Also, it’s hot as hell in the heat of summer starting very early in the morning, sunscreen, hat and cooling towel recommended. The last 0.5-1 mile is pretty ridiculous. Very steep and slippery narrow dirt path which looks like someone bulldozed the trail. There are parts where you are walking foot by foot in this narrow foot bed so you don’t trip and fall. Took 3 hours to ascend and 2.5 hours to descend.
