  1. HP10 is 1 large box, at about 5700 feet, in the GPS route HOCKETT PLATEAU.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Oct 2004:
    The Dillonwood Grove Entrance, between Dennison and Moses, is used mostly by hunters. There is better access to both peaks from other trailheads, but if you want cross-country adventure with giant sequoias in a natural setting, this is the place. One large box is at the end of the road, just right of the permanently locked gate where the topo map shows a hairpin turn at 5700' on a rough 4WD road. There are two apparently seasonal gates below this one.

  3. HP10 coordinates: (see waypoint and interactive map links above)
      (lat,lon) = (36.2988400, -118.7141400) in decimal degrees, NAD83.
      (zone,east,north) = (11S, 346167.0, 4018261.0) in decimal meters, NAD27.
