DRIVING ROUTE 1

  • From Mojave, go north on SR 14 for 33.4 miles to a dirt road signed 'SC 65'. Turn left. This is 13.9 miles north of Jawbone Canyon or 8.8 miles south of the westbound (Walker Pass) SR 178 junction with SR 14. Note your odometer and go as follows:
  • Cross an immediate cattle guard.
  • At 2.6 miles, a faint junction. Keep straight.
  • At 4.9 miles, a cattle guard and a covered aqueduct. Turn left (south). This is the turnoff for Route 1. Continue straight for Route 2. Note your odometer again.
  • At 0.6 mile, a cattle guard.
  • At 0.9 mile, junction with SC 106 to the right. Turn right (west).
  • At 1.3 miles, junction at a second aqueduct. Keep straight.
  • At 2.9 miles, SC 47 forks left. Keep straight on SC 106.
  • At 5.0 miles, fork with SC 120. Turn right (northwest) on SC 120.
  • At 9.0 miles, Bird Spring Pass. Park here.

Bird Spring Pass may also be reached by driving north on Jawbone Canyon Road 32.2 miles from SR 14 to the fork for SC 120 on the right (east). This fork is also 5.7 miles north of the Piute Mountain Road fork at Sageland. Drive east on SC 120 for 5.6 miles to Bird Spring Pass.

HIKING ROUTE 1

  • Hike north on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) from the parking area (5300'). The trail starts in a northeast direction, eventually switchbacks up the eastern slopes to the main ridgeline, and then heads westward toward the peak. Stay on the PCT to about 7000' where it definitely starts downhill. Note: The PCT route is not as shown on the USGS topo map.
  • Turn left here, leave the trail, and go up to the ridge.
  • Go west along the ridge to the summit, which is a solitary rock just west of a clump of rocks and trees that you see first.

On the return trip it is possible to descend a great scree slope from elevation 6931' down to the trail below. Turn right on the trail and follow it back to the parking area.
