Route step-by-step
Start out at Dawson Saddle and climb towards Throop Peak.
After about 2 miles, the trail connects to the PCT. Follow the PCT towards Mt Burnham.
The last few hundred yards require leaving the PCT. While the maps may show a trail to the summit, it's almost indiscernible. Just aim towards the highest point and climb!
Getting there
Take CA-2 (Angeles Crest Highway) to Dawson Saddle. There is parking along the side of the highway.
Red tape
A day pass or California Adventure Pass is required to park here.
