DIRECTIONS: 

Chuchupate Trailhead Observing Site

The parking lot for the USFS Chuchupate Trailhead is a nice dark and open area. The National Forest Service now has a dedicated web page for the the "Frazier Mountain Trailhead" parking lot that we know as Chuchupate. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/lpnf/recarea/?recid=81856

From the Antelope Valley,  Take CA-138 (Ave D) west to Interstate 5.  Take I-5 North  to Frazier Mountain Road exit. Go west, passing Frazier Park, until you come to a 4 way stop with a flashing red light. Continue straight ahead for several more miles until you come to Lockwood Valley Road.  Turn LEFT. Continue for about 3 miles until you see a small sign "Chuchupate Ranger Station", turn LEFT (Frazier Mountain Rd/Forest Rte BN04) . The speed limit on this road is 20 mph. Drive through the Ranger Camp, for about 1/8 mile until you see a sign "Trail Head" and make a right turn into the parking lot. 
There are restrooms but no running water and you should bring your own food and water.  Cell service is spotty.
