HIKING ROUTE 2
- From the parking area (7260'), note the large center gully on the south
side of the highway with a vertical culvert
pipe at the bottom. On the left side of the gully there is an obvious use
trail that ascends steeply up the slope.
- Hike up this use trail, bearing
about 210°, 1/4 mile to Windy Gap (7588').
- Continue east
on the PCT for 1.4 miles farther to saddle 8400', where a trail forks to
the south. This is the turnoff for Mount Hawkins.
- Take the south fork, keeping left at what looks like an immediate fork,
until the trail goes around the east side of elevation 8440'+ to the saddle
south of it.
- Here a use trail goes off to the right and up the ridge to
the summit about 1/3 mile from the trail fork.
