DRIVING ROUTE 1

  • Take US 101 and SR 33 to the town of Ojai.
  • From Ojai, go north on SR 33 for about 31 miles to Pine Mountain Summit (signed). There is a paved road junction on the right - Pine Mountain Road (6N06). Turn right onto this road. Note your odometer and go as follows:
  • At 4.7 miles, campground. Keep straight.
  • At 5.7 miles, another campground. Keep straight.
  • At 6.3 miles, pavement ends.
  • At 6.9 miles, the road ends at a parking area in a saddle. Park here. Plenty of parking.

HIKING ROUTE 1

  • Pass through the wooden posts at the east end of the parking area (7000'), and go about 300 yards to another saddle where the road goes downhill. Two trails start here. The right trail goes to Reyes Peak. The left one goes somewhat downhill along the north side of the mountain. This trail goes to Haddock Mountain.
  • Take the left trail and follow it along the north side of Reyes Peak approximately 1.5 miles.
  • The trail continues about 2.5 miles further, to where it climbs up to elevation 7416'. Look for ducks on the right side of the trail. The summit is the high point to the right and about 50' up off the trail.

Haddock Mountain has also been climbed via trail from Thorn Meadows. See the Thorn Point (LO) guide.


NOTE

The register is in a mortar hole. If you come to a sign "Haddock Mountain", you have gone too far. Come back three bumps to the west. The summit is not the benchmark "Haddock" on the topo. Please do not move the register out to that point.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS

Pine Mountain Road is seasonal. SR 33 to the Chorro Grande trailhead is normally open year round.
