Peak Name: Sycuan Peak
Distance: 2.15 miles
Date: November 12, 2017
Summit: 2,793 feet
After three peaks the day before, I opted to just grab a shorter peak on Sunday. Sycuan Peak fits that bill perfectly. Ted and I made the drive out to the trailhead. I was thankful to have some extra eyes, as there wasn’t much parking on the road and the trailhead was easy to miss. Once we began up the trail, we did see the sign for the ecological preserve.
The trail immediately started climbing steeply. Portions of the trail were quite rutted as well continued our ascent, but soon we found ourselves scrambling over the rocks to reach the summit.
I don’t think there was a register, but we did find the benchmark. After a short rest, we headed back down to the car.
