Getting There and Route
Take I-15 to the city of Corona and exit at Weirick Road. Turn right at the end of the off ramp and turn left onto Knabe Road. Drive about a 1/2 mile where on your right you'll see a truck yard. Just north of this fenced in yard you'll see a narrow road. You'll see a sign that says Bedford Motorway, turn right here and drive up through the houses. Soon you'll pass through a new housing developement and golf course. After about 2 miles you'll pass a gate with a sign reading 4S03, this is Bedford Road. At a little over 6 miles from the start of Bedford Road you will reach the Main Divide Road. Turn right onto this road. Continue on this road for about 3 miles. You will cross a series of peaks on the left side of the road. Basically the middle one is Bedford, pay attention to a topo map to keep them straight. Hike up the open short firebreak to the summit.
Roundtrip is around 18 miles, with atleast 2800 feet of gain but due to the routes roller coaster nature I would be ready for +4000 feet.
Red TapeYou will need a Adventure Pass to park anywhere in the National Forest. Adventure Passes are available at many gas stations and grocery stores in the Corona area.
