DRIVING ROUTE 1
- Take US 101 and SR 33 to the town of Ojai.
- From Ojai, go north on SR 33 for about 31 miles to Pine Mountain
Summit (signed). There is a paved road junction on the right - Pine
Mountain Road (6N06). Turn right onto this road. Note your odometer
and go as follows:
- At 4.7 miles, campground. Keep straight.
- At 5.7 miles, another campground. Keep straight.
- At 6.3 miles, pavement ends.
- At 6.9 miles, the road ends at a parking area in a saddle. Park here.
Plenty of parking.
HIKING ROUTE 1
- Pass through the wooden posts at
the east end of the parking area (7000'), and
go about 300 yards to another saddle where the road goes downhill.
Two trails start here. The right trail goes to Reyes
Peak. The left one goes somewhat downhill along the north side of
the mountain. This trail goes to Haddock Mountain.
- Take the left trail and
follow it along the north side of Reyes Peak
approximately 1.5 miles.
- The trail continues about 2.5 miles further, to where it
climbs up to
elevation 7416'. Look for
ducks on the right side of the trail. The summit is the high point to the
right and about 50' up off the trail.
