Hike 2016.010 -- Josephine Peak via Josephine Road (2N64)
I am moderately certain you do not need an Adventure Pass for this spot, but that would be up to you. If it's a weekend, you can ask the ranger at the Clear Creek Ranger Station (on Angeles Crest Highway, just east of the junction with the Angeles Forest Highway--it's within sight of the trailhead). Technically, since there is no developed facilities within 1/2 mile of here, other than the ranger station, where no Adventure Pass is required, I'd say, "No." But, again, it's your call. Since I have the Federal Lands Recreation Pass, anyway, I displayed that, to be safe.
Colby Canyon, which leads back down to Angeles Crest Highway, just a few miles east of where I started.
It was hazy to the south, but Palos Verdes pocked above the fog. Numerous ridges lined up to the east and northeast. Great view. Fun hike, at least when it's not too hot.
