DRIVING ROUTE 3
- From the intersection of I-210 and Angeles Crest Highway (SR 2),
drive north on Angeles Crest Highway to mile marker 71.0. This is at a
gully about 1.5 miles east of Dawson Saddle, near the "a" in "Lodgepole
Picnic Area" title on the Crystal Lake USGS topo. Park
on the east side of the highway in a paved turnout. The UTM coordinates
for the parking area are 0427382E, 3802383N.
HIKING ROUTE 3
- From the parking area (7550'), hike east on an obvious use trail.
east up this steep use trail to where it meets a prominent ridge, then
follow the ridge to a trail junction with the PCT
just north of the summit.
- Leave the trail and go straight up to the summit
or continue on the PCT to the east side of Mount Burnham, leave the trail
and hike up to the summit.
Take special care to note the route for return to the vehicles. Avoid
continuing northwest down the main ridge as this ridge runs out into a
steep highway cut.
