  • Drive north on I-5 past the Grapevine to the SR 166 off-ramp. Turn left (west).
  • Head west 36.5 miles, passing through Maricopa, to the junction with SR 33 south. This junction may be reached by a slower route via SR 33 north from Ojai. (There is a junction with SR 33 north in Maricopa that you will pass in Maricopa.) Turn left (south).
  • Go 2.7 miles to Foothill Road on the right. Turn right (west).
  • Go 2.1 miles, crossing the Cuyama River, to the Santa Barbara Canyon Road (9N11) on the left. Turn left, note your odometer, and go as follows:
  • At 3.1 miles, just past a ranch house, junction with a dirt road on the left and a paved road on the right with a sign "Santa Barbara Canyon Road". Turn right.
  • At 7.5 miles, fork with Santa Barbara Ranch visible ahead. Go right and cross a creek. The pavement ends.
  • At 9.5 miles, a cattle guard and gate. Gate may be closed. Check with Mt. Pinos Ranger district, Chuchupate station, for status.
  • At 10.0 miles, an obscure dirt road appears on the right. Turn right (west) on this road a few yards to a turn-around, suitable for overnight car camps. Park here.


  • From the parking area (3250'), hike across the streambed and head west-northwest directly up the ridge. An occasionally obscure use trail leads in a generally northwest direction up the ridge and over bump 5000'. The use trail is usually on the south side of the ridge.
  • From this point the trail runs northwest past a shallow saddle, across elevation 5038', down into another saddle, and up another bump (5080'+).
  • From here hike cross-country toward the left (west) summit, which is the peak.

If the Cuyama River is impassable, return to the junction of SR 166 and SR 33 and go as follows:

  • Go west on SR 166 for 4.7 miles to a bridge over the Cuyama River, and an immediate junction past the bridge, on your left. This is Kirschenmann Road (paved). Turn left.
  • Continue 2.4 miles to the end of Kirschenmann at Foothill Road. Turn left (east).
  • Drive 3 miles to Santa Barbara Canyon Road on the right (south). Turn right and continue as above.
