Reyes Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This route traverses the central stretch of the Pine Mountain massif from Reyes Peak and across Haddock Mountain through mature high-elevation pine forest. It terminates at the saddle dividing the Beartrap and Piedra Blanca watersheds (the junction with the Gene Marshall–Piedra Blanca National Recreation Trail)."

"This is a wonderful area of the Los Padres National Forest; there are magnificent campgrounds in a splendid pine forest setting above 7000 feet in elevation. Fifteen years ago, the area and its camps were used relatively infrequently, but the secret is no longer quiet, and this region now gets a lot of use. Still, any one of the campgrounds is amazing and well worth the trip and an overnight stay. Pine forest is rare in this section of Southern California; much of Los Padres is coastal mountains and low-lying hills that don’t reach elevations high enough to support large populations of conifers. The name of the hike is a misnomer, because the trail does not actually take you to Reyes Peak. Instead, the Reyes Peak Trail follows the crest of Pine Mountain Ridge."

I called the ranger station 2 days ahead of time and the woman at the office said the trail was open. I drove from L.A., 90 minutes, to find out the trail was closed. The trail guide says that it is a six mile drive off the highway to the trail head. and it was closed right at the entrance. So I think that the woman at the ranger station didn't really know if it was open or closed. Unfortunately it was a long drive for nothing. There isn't very many trails in the area that are worth while. Just be prepared. It might be hit or miss on getting on this trail. Happy Hiking.
