DRIVING ROUTE 1
- Go east on I-10 to I-15.
- Go north on I-15 to SR 138. Turn left (west).
- Go west on SR 138 to the junction with SR 2. Turn left.
- Go southwest on SR 2 through Wrightwood and 4 miles further to the
junction with N4. Keep left on SR 2.
- Go 1.8 miles farther to a large parking area on both sides of the
road. At the beginning of the left parking area is the Blue Ridge Road
(dirt). Take this road. Note your odometer and go as follows:
- At 0.3 mile, fork. Keep right.
- At 1.4 miles, fork at a ski run. Keep left.

through a gate.

- At 7.2 miles, the road swings left around a ridge with a parking area
on the right. Park here. This is also the trailhead for
Wright Mountain and Dawson
HIKING ROUTE 1
- At the parking area (8310'), there is a spade marker with a red and white
sign and a wooden sign with the legend "Sheep Mountain Wilderness".
- Follow the obvious trail (quite steep in spots) over
several bumps to Pine Mountain
which is just to the left of the trail.
The gate at Guffy Campground is sometimes closed. It is possible to hike
the peak from the campground via the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which passes
along the north side of the campground. See Route 2.
