HIKING ROUTE 2

NOTES FOR ROUTE 2

Route 2 can be combined with Routes 1 and 2 for Cross Mountain to allow both peaks to be done as a loop trip without the need for a car shuttle. This trip can be done in a clockwise or counter clockwise configuration.

This route was temporarily withdrawn due to an access restriction (LA DWP is buidling a huge windfarm) that we've been told has been lifted. Do not hike into the windfarm itself.
