    Brenda,
    I am sorry there is not an address for this park on that it is part of the Verdugo Mountains. It really isn't too hard to find. Exit 210 freeway at La Tuna Canyon near city of Tujunga. Head west on La Tuna Canyon for 3/4 mile. There is a small turnout where you can park. There is a sign for the trailhead. Hike should take 4 to 4 1/2 hours.

    We meet at La Tuna Canyon Park which is 3/4 of a mile West of the intersection of the 210 & La Tuna Canyon. This is NOT where you normally see all the cars parked right off the freeway. Again, 3/4 miles West, you will see a sign with the name of the park. I am driving a blue Toyota Highlander.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
