DRIVING ROUTE 2
- Take I-10 east and I-15 north to Sierra Avenue. Turn left at the
bottom of the off-ramp.
- Go 1.6 miles to a dirt road on the left. Turn left. Note your
odometer and go as follows:
- At 1.0 mile, junction at a power line. Go straight.
- At 5.6 miles, fork with 1N36 (closed) on the left. Keep straight.
- At 7.8 miles, fork. Turn right.
- At 7.9 miles, a difficult to see fork in a saddle.
The right fork is closed by an earthen berm. This is the parking for Route 1.
- At 8.2 miles, road ends next to some radio towers. Park here.
HIKING ROUTE 2
- From the parking area (5640+'), walk back down the road about 40 yards. There may be a duck here.
- Leave the dirt road on the left and proceed easterly down a hunter's trail. (Very steep at the top end).
- Proceed to the East and then NE, following the trail along the ridge. It may be marked with ribbons and ducks.
- At 5160', you will meet an old dirt road.
- Turn left and follow this dirt road down into a saddle at 5100' and then up to the old lookout side at the end of the road. Expect brush on much of this abandoned road.
- The register is in a pile of rocks on the left (west) as you approach the old foundation.
It is a rough dirt road drive to the trailhead, best done in a high clearance 4WD.
