At 5,646 feet, Josephine Peak is not the highest in the San Gabriel Mountains, but along with Mount Wilson, it may be the most accessible by bicycle. The route is quite simple—strictly an out- and- back excursion. The turnaround point is the summit of Josephine Peak, although the actual summit is 130 feet higher than where the trail goes. There is no designated parking near the trail. The Clear Creek Ranger Station has parking only for official vehicles; the adjacent visitor center restricts stays to 15 minutes.
