Description

Bell Peak can be as short or as long of a hike as you want it to be. The climb starts immediately and only gets more challenging as you climb towards the flag-topped peak. Views of south Orange County from the canyon to the ocean are beautiful on a clear day. You can choose to either make the quick hike to Bell Peak or continue all the way to Los Pinos Peak.

A tough trail. In places so steep that I would’ve turned back had I not known that I’d take a different route on the way back. Nice views. 9.6mi
