Ascent Trip ReportWe accessed Alamo Mountain from I-5 from Lebec and used Peace Valley Road. Go north on Peace Valley Road and where it meets Gold Hill Road, turn onto Gold Hill Road and zero your odometer. This route requires you to pass through the massive Hungry Valley OHV area which has an entrance fee. Go 5.2 miles and make a right turn where there is a sign indicating Alamo Mtn is 10.5 miles. It is further than that. After turning right, continue and at 11.4 miles cross Piru Creek at a rough creek crossing. At 13.4 miles the pavement ends, at 17.9 miles turn right, and at 18.3 miles make a sharp left hand turn up hill. At 18.7 miles reach the end of the road at the Twin Pines campground. Park here at 6,600 ft.
The hike is an easy uphill cross country hike under forest cover to the ridgeline and then follow the ridgeline to the summit. We explored 3 different closed contours and 4 places on the summit ridge and it appears that the center rocky outcropping is the highest point. Nice hike, limited views.
