Ascent Trip Report

Followed the road all the way to the summit. The peak has an excellent 360 view, especially of the Hawkins ridge. On this day, with cold temps and crystalline skies, we could see all the way out to Catalina. There is a firebreak beginning at Elev. 3439, Lat 34.2244, Long 117.8896. It climbs over Point 3983' to just below the summit of Pine Mtn. We should have tried this, since it would have saved at least 1.5 miles one-way.
