21-Oct-2018 -- My first (and only) visit to this point was way back in December 2002, where I remember recording ‘all zeros’ for the first time. Almost 16 years later, I decided to revisit this point, to get a drone’s-eye view.
The trick to visiting this Degree Confluence Point is figuring out where/how to cross the California Aqueduct (which passes 0.5 miles southeast of the point). From Laval Road (the nearby exit off I-5), you need to get onto Dennis McCarthy Drive, the frontage road (parallel to I-5), and drive north along this until you get to 35.00862°N 118.95702°W, on Sabodan Road. From there, you turn south onto the (very rough, poorly-maintained) paved road that snakes up the hill from there. Eventually, you end up crossing the California Aqueduct at 34.99429°N 118.99276°W. A locked gate - just past the aqueduct - prevented me from driving further, but at this point, I was only 0.5 miles from the point.
A dirt road passes just 0.1 miles from the point. If you take this road all the way, you’ll end up just 40 m north of the point, but in a deep gully with a very steep hillside between you and the point. Instead, you should leave the road at 34.99770°N 118.99685°W to start hiking up a grassy ridge. The point lies near the top of this ridge.
