    Most popular access is from the San Gabriel Trailhead at San Gabriel Ave and 40th Place.

    From I-10 and Elliot head west on Elliot to 44th Street. Turn right on 44th St and take the second left on to E San Gabriel Ave. Follow Gabriel to 40 Place. There is a right notch or jag in the street but it goes through. Parking is only allowed on the west side (mountain side) of 40th Place. Parking is 5am to 8pm only!

    Simply head north passing Western Star. When you pass the house turn right on the Desert Classic Trail and follow a short distance to the noticeable maintenance road going up the ridge.
