Blue Point

Blue Point resides at the intersection of Jawbone Canyon Rd. and SC176 at the mouth of Alphie Canyon. This unique section of land is part of the geologic Ricardo Formation. The bluish-green rocks are old volcanic debris colorized by small amounts of copper. The formation was once considered sacred by Native Americans who seasonally lived in the area. It was mined in the 1950s for commercial use in roofing materials. Roofing granules were produced in six colors: light green, blue-green, purple, bronze, pink, and blue, according to a California Division of Mines and Geology report about Blue Point.

Blue Point can be seen when riding the Jawbone Canyon Loop OHV Trail, a popular route for visitors to the area.

You can find this discovery point via GPS at N35.3189, W118.0829, or in section F-7 with the Jawbone Canyon OHV Map, Ed. 14.1.
