See also 76 Crystal Lake to Little Jimmy Spring, Mt. Islip and 77.3 Islip Saddle to Windy Gap, Mt. Hawkins, Throop Peak, Mt. Baden-Powell, Vincent Gap. The date of the described hike is given in parentheses for each link.
These hikes start from either of two trailheads 1.5 miles apart, but travel much the same route to Mt. Islip. The hike starting from Islip Saddle is 7 miles roundtrip and 1,500' of altitude gain, and the hike starting from Pine Hollow is 5.6 miles round-trip and 1,250'. The Pine Hollow trailhead is 1.5 miles east of Islip Saddle along SR2 at milepost 65.5, opposite the now-removed Pine Hollow Picnic Area. The addition of the Windy Gap Loop makes the hike 8 miles and 2,300'.

Update to Robinson 1998: Delete the last paragraph under Description, p. 144. This paragraph is a holdover from the previous incarnation of this hike (e.g., the 1976 3rd edition), when trip 77 started at now-removed Pine Hollow Picnic Area, which is 1.5 miles east of Islip Saddle. (Update from Jane Strong.)
Afoot and Afield in Los Angeles County, Jerry Schad, First edition, May 1991 (4th printing, April 1995), Area A-11, Hike 5, p. 230, describes the hike from milepost 65.5.
