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 follows:
  • 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.
