|Cajon Pass - Map of Sullivan's Curve|
|by Gary G. Gray|
Below is a Google map showing directions to Sullivan's
Here are three edited Google maps showing the most common route used to visit Sullivanís Curve. Yearly, hundreds of railfans visit the area without incident, however we feel it necessary to enclose several "cautions".
Hwy 138 is a very narrow, winding and high-speed road. The turn onto the Lone Pine Canyon Road and then onto 2N89 deserve considerable caution.
The gravel road leading to Sullivanís shares space with the UPRR and can be very rough and narrow. We see numerous automobiles on the curve but a vehicle with some clearance is recommended.
Snakes and Bee Hives are common throughout Cajon. Rattle Snakes are seen frequently. Children and pets should be closely monitored when visiting all areas of Cajon Pass. Common sense rules of exploring any desert should be adhered to.
Please respect the land and stay away from the tracks.
The Hill 582 Bunch (GGG & DET) 8/02/11

Below are photos taken from the air on
June 2, 2010. Even there was not a single train in the Pass during our flight,
still gives an idea about the different locations. We also recommend to see our 8 diff. maps by Gary Gray (see below).
