Detailed information about Mt. Pinos can be found here. You will take one and half hours from Palmdale to Mt. Pinos. Take Hwy 14 North to the Hwy 138 off-ramp. Go over Hwy 138 and continue west on Hwy 138 to the I-5 North on-ramp. Continue on I-5 North just past Gorman and take the turn-off on the Frazier Park off-ramp. Turn left underneath I-5 and continue west for 21 miles to Mt. Pinos. (You will pass Frazer Park and follow signs to Mt. Pinos Recreation Area.) After passing through two seasonal snow gates, keep going another 3 1/2 miles. The observing site is a large paved parking area at the very end of the road, at 8300 ft elevation. There is no water there. You must bring you own. We are roughing it. There are portable restrooms. The skies can be fantastic. The temperature can be very cold - even in the Summer! You may camp overnight in the walk in campground only. Check out the information below for the latest sky conditions at Mt. Pinos.
