I'm doing a ride in a couple of weeks somewhere off Angeles Crest, Mt. Wilson, and Upper Tujunga. The actual route has not been disclosed yet but Jarvis Point was mentioned. Tried Google but was unsuccessful. Does anybody know where Jarvis Point is along these areas? I wanted to see the elevation just so I have an idea.

I lived in LA in my twenties and spent basically every weekend riding pushbikes and motorbikes up there and know the area pretty well. Have to be honest, never heard of it.

Had a think. Bet they mean Sim Jarvi Memorial. Which is like 10 miles north of Mt Waterman on the Crest (2).

+1 . Look for 'Jarvi' on this webpage : http://angelescrestscenichighway.com/road-guide.html

Back home now - this map is centered on the memorial.

Thanks for the info! :beer: I had a feeling somebody here would know. That looks like a lot of elevation.

You have some climbing in your future but it is beautiful up there. There are a couple of attention-getting climbs back on the way down too. Take some layers - it gets chilly up there this time of year. Have fun.
