Buck Point and San Sevaine Lookout

I am planning on hiking these 2 peaks soon. Anyone know if the road is open to drive to them from the I-15. Anyone aware of alternative (aka more interesting) routes? It looks like it would be a good hike to Buck Point from Icehouse Canyon over Etiwanda Peak.

I still want to hike these peaks. There is a trip report on summitpost.

http://www.summitpost.org/trip-re...ookout-san-gabriel-mountains.html

Here is the route I am now thinking, it was mentioned in the HPS route page. Trailhead from the north end of Etiwanda Ave.

I checked about a month or so ago and the road was gated.  I've been eyeing that ridge for quite a while when driving by and it looks doable.
I've also considered just hiking up the dirt road and tagging the two, but that's no fun!  Let me know if you want company in trying out that ridge.

I checked it out on google earth, the ridge looks brush free (looks like the firebreak is in good condition). Check out the track (this will open in Google Earth).

i gathered all the info together and put it up on my website:

http://www.gpsmountaineering.com/buckpointandsanservainelookout

i am hoping to do this hike next sunday, Jan. 20th.

i estimate that to hike to both Buck Point and San Servaine Lookout it would be 16.5 miles and 5500 ft elev. gain, maybe a little less if I can drive further up the dirt road.

let me know if you are interested in joining us,

Travis,
Here's a pic of the ridge:


There's a gate right where your map starts.
I would like to join with you guys, what time would you plan on starting?  I'm considering tagging Etiwanda as well since after all it's right there(kinda).  Smile
But that's going to require an early start and add ~10 miles and bring the elevation gain closer to 9000ft. Plus the snow!  hhhmmmm....

Did a very similar "route finding" hike a few years ago off of etiwanda ave adnd then up to the road to Big Tree and then over Etiwanda to Cucamonga and shuttled over to Ice House.  Some interesting route finding but very doable  ---- wear long pants some of that brush gets quite thick.

Is the road open?

Lytle Creek Ranger Station said it was closed and that no one was allowed. We ended up doing Cucamonga from the usual Icehouse Canyon direction.

That'd be road 1N34 I think. Supposed to be closed except during the fall I believe (map below from the ranger station says it is open Labor Day thru January). The gate just a few yards off of Lytle Creek Road was locked a few weeks ago. The Lytle Creek Ranger Station will know if you give em a ring (if you dare).

Even easier is to follow more up-to-date beta.
http://canyonbeta.com/2010/01/bonita-canyon/

I think the elevation gain is considered 500ft.

Watch your rope pull on the last rap, and have the first man down carry the rope, there are generally lots of people at the bottom of the falls

They don't know to get out of the way.

That route up may be getting a bit brushy now...

As of 9-11-11 1N34 is open to Joe Eliot Tree Memorial Campground from Lytle Creek Rd. I did not discover that it was open until this afternoon. I grabbed something to drink and took my Jeep up about 3.5 miles to a scenic view above Coyote Canyon which eventually sheds into Etiwanda flood control channel. This coming Friday (or earlier) I will travel 1N34 to Joe Elliot Campground if road conditions permit me to do so. I'll post road conditions after that time for those of you that may be interested.

might want to double check with the local USFS office and see if it is indeed supposed to be open, especially if it hasn't been open in a long time. Sometimes, contractors or other interests leave gates open/unlocked by mistake. It would suck to get locked behind a gate.

Thanks MtnMan,

You are absolutely right about checking with the Lytle Creek Ranger Station before attempting the trek. The road normally opens soon after Labor Day and will stay open until a goodly amount of snow falls. However, they may choose to close the road to the public for washouts or other hazards. Sometimes they temporarily close the road during high fire hazard conditions such as high and dry winds. A couple of years ago the road was closed after a man died while riding his motorcycle. Therefore, it is a good idea to check for impassibility prior to arrival.

Hi all,

Please forgive my late report on 1N34 road conditions. I know some of you have personally walked the upper sections of this road and know that some sections could be difficult in a car.

If you want to drive the entire distance to the Cucamonga Peak trail head. I would recommend at least a high clearance vehicle. I would also recommend the security of four wheel drive to safely carry you through some deeply rutted or rocky areas. There was one nasty washout near Joe Elliott campground that someone kindly filled up with various sized logs and limbs in order to make the road passable, but a little iffy.

As far as regular passenger vehicles are concerned, the road condition is pretty good through mile 5 to 7. There are some rocky spots, so take it slow. I believe some minor washout ruts occurred prior to reaching the fork to the communications site.

For all vehicles, be advised that Whitethorn (Ceanothus Leucodermis) narrows up the road in many places. If you are worried about the paint on your vehicle, don't use this road.

In other words, the road conditions on 1N34 are similar to descriptions in previous posts. This road is certainly one of my favorites for many reasons. Stunning scenery and vistas are to be had for the entire length of road. If you drive slowly in the rough spots like I do, allow yourself at least two hours of travel in each direction.

Most importantly, take your time and drive very carefully.

I have been wondering about this road. Thanks for posting the update. All I need now is to scrounge up 70k or so for a new Land Cruiser to drive it.

I went as far as the parking area for Buck Point last Friday. The road was in good shape and not too over grown. The routes to Buck Point and San Sevaine are very overgrown. I was wearing jeans and my legs were still cut up from the  buckthorn.

Took the road up today all the way to Joe Elliot, where the heck is the tree that is so famous? I couldn't find it

Definately high clearance necessary, scraped a branch on the washout right before the campsite. 4WD handy if you get stuck there.

Heres some pics of the washout(with tree branches placed to drive over)

The road is officially open - the FS tries to get it open for deer hunters - but it may close at any time if we get some Santa Ana wind "Red Flag Warning" conditions.

Be aware that this is a popular area with hunters! Wear orange!

The Joe Elliot tree fell, and then burned in the Grand Prix Fire.

I would say yes, but very slowly. I drove it last year, in a truck and dont remember any big problems. I remember the worst part was after San Sevaine, toward buck point.

I drove that road this past Saturday and it is in pretty good shape. There was a Honda civic at San sevaine so you'll be ok to that point. Continuing on to Buck Point might be a bit difficult. Beware, there were quite a few hunters out there.

Internet reports including this one indicate that passenger cars would have serious problems on this road. That report is 3 years old, but it's doubtful that 1N34 has received any maintenance since then.

In any event, the road is closed.

Quote:
1N34 - San Sevaine Road - Closed
Date(s): Mar 17, 2013


Forest Road 1N34 (San Sevaine Road) is closed until further notice.  For more information, please call the Lytle Creek Ranger Station at 909-382-2851 (closed Tues/Wed).

A carefully / skillfully driven passenger care with some reasonable ground clearance could likely be driven to San Sevaine flat.

Forget going past there

I think that web page may not be current, because when I talked to the ranger station they told me it was closed due to the wind event, but said I could call back later to see if it had been opened.

"Reasonable ground clearance"...hmmm ...  I will have to think about that.

FYI it's open again

The FS website is generally kept up to date, except when it's misbehaving (technical glitches), or during furlough :p

Hi guys,
Was thinking about taking a camping trip to Joe Elliott Campground this coming weekend Sat-Sun 5/10-5/11. Does anybody know if the road is open all the way through to there from Lytle Creek?

Thanks!

San Sevaine Road "officially" opens from Labor Day until the first rains. You can check with Lytle Creek Ranger station but it has never been opened this early in the year as far as I know.

It was open last December, I rode it on my motorcycle. I'm pretty sure the FS website said it was closed then too, but it was wide open and multiple people driving it.  I'll call and ask. Thanks!
