Big Pine is located at the eastern pinnacle of the San Rafael Mountains and is the tallest point in Santa Barbara County.  It is also the highest point in the Dick Smith Wilderness.  While the summit is more flat and rounded than most peaks, there are still great views in all directions.  It's a great accomplishment to summit Big Pine, congratulations if you've been here.
