DRIVING ROUTE 1
- Take I-10 east past San Bernardino to the Orange Street exit (SR 38).
- Go one block east, then go north (left) 0.5 mile to Lugonia Avenue.
Turn right on SR 38 (east).
- Continue east on SR 38 about 20 miles to Angelus Oaks.
- Here, turn left onto 1N12, Thomas Hunting Ground Road, just past
the wide store parking area on the left. Note your odometer and go as
- At 0.1 mile, fork. Keep right.
- At 0.45 mile, fork. Keep right.
- At 1.1 miles, fork. Go left.
- At 1.4 miles, the road goes over a saddle to the east side of the
ridge. Park right before the saddle at the only parking spot for
several cars for 1/2 mile in either direction.
HIKING ROUTE 1
- From the parking area (6100'), hike up the ridge that heads south,
meeting a use trail that stays generally to the right (northwest) of
and slightly below the ridgeline.
- The use trail goes steeply up to a minor bump, then turns southwest and
continues over a larger bump until it drops into an obvious saddle that
lies just north of the summit area.
- Cross over this final saddle and find
a use trail that ascends south to the summit through occasional brush.
