On a forest service road north of the Bogus Basin ski area.
I had some time this afternoon, and the hash looked very reachable. So I decided to try to reach it. From the satelite imagery, it looked like the hash was right on a logging road. Due to winding, poor quality roads, it took over an hour to drive to the vicinity of the hash. I found a spot where I could turn my car around and park it about 750ft from the hash, and parked. At this point I realized that I'd left my camera at home. So I set my phone to record a tracklog for the walking portion of my expedition. As I walked down the road towards the hash, I realized that the hash was actually a bit south of the road, up a rather steep slope. So I got to about 20ft from the hash and started climbing. It wasn't a very easy climb, the slope being composed largely of very coarse sand/fine gravel. But after a bit of zig-zagging, I got within the 4ft margin of error on my phone's GPS. The hash appeared to be very nearly in the same spot that a small pine tree was growing. I sat down by the tree and took some pictures, posted a message here indicating my success, and then walked/slid back down to the road and took some more pictures, and headed back to my car.
