DRIVING ROUTE 2
- Take I-5 north to the town of Castaic and exit on Lake Hughes Road.
- Take Lake Hughes Road northeast for 13.2 miles to a dirt road on the
left with a sign "Warm Springs Canyon Road". Turn left on
6N32, a good to fair dirt road (do not take the paved road
to the detention facility). Google Maps identifies this road as "Warm Springs Fish Canyon Truck Trail".
- Follow the main road which climbs the right canyon wall about 2 1/2
miles to a saddle and a 3 way road junction. Park here. Ample
- Note: motorcycles can continue another 4 miles on 7N13 by
going over some berms that stop progress of vehicles.
HIKING ROUTE 2
- From the parking area (2900'), hike up the road for about 4 miles
to the road's end.
- Continue up a firebreak, bearing around to
the left at a junction about 100 yards below the top of the first bump.
- Bear right around the second bump following the fire road to the third
bump which is the summit.
This has also been reported as the fourth bump.
