Original: Paul A. Lipsohn - Jun 1972

DRIVING ROUTE 1

  • Take Hwy 101 & Hwy 33 to the town of Ojai, CA.
  • From Ojai, go north on Hwy 33 for about 31 miles to Pine Mountain Summit (signed). There is a paved road junction on the right (Pine Mountain Road FS 6N06). Turn right onto this road. Note your odometer and go as follows:
  • At 4.7 miles, campground. Keep straight.
  • At 5.7 miles, another campground. Keep straight.
  • At 6.3 miles, pavement ends.
  • At 6.9 miles, the road ends at a parking area in a saddle. Park here. Plenty of parking.

HIKING ROUTE 1

From the parking area (7000'), pass the barricade at the end of the road and go about 300 yards to another saddle where the road goes downhill. Two trails start here. The right trail goes to Reyes Peak. The left one goes somewhat downhill along the north side of the mountain. This trail goes to Haddock Mountain. Take the left trail and follow it along the north side of Reyes Peak to where it climbs up to elev. 7416'. This is about 0.4 miles past a triangular orange metal sign "NH 36" along the trail. Look for ducks on the right side of the trail. The summit is the high point to the right and about 50' up off the trail.

(USFS Adventure Pass Required)
Distance: Adds ½ mile to Route 1
Gain: Adds 200' to Route 1
Time: Adds ½ hour to Route 1
Rating: Class 1; Moderate

Original: Warren E. von Pertz, Dec 1968

DRIVING ROUTE 2

  • Same as Route 1

HIKING ROUTE 2

See the Reyes Peak guide. From the summit of Reyes Peak, go east down the ridge along a use trail which will soon intersect the trail described in Route 1 of this guide. Proceed from here as in Route 1.

NOTE

The register is in a mortar hole. If you come to a sign "Haddock Mountain", you have gone too far. Come back three bumps to the west. The summit is NOT the benchmark "Haddock" on the topo. Please do not move the register out to that point.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS

Pine Mountain Road is seasonal. Hwy. 33 to the Chorro Grande trailhead is normally open year round.

OTHER ROUTES

Haddock Mountain has also been climbed via trail from Thorn Meadows. (See the Thorn Point (LO) guide.)
