The Hike: Sullivan Canyon is a relatively easy out and back hike of about 7.5 miles. This is a pleasant hike along a wide, shaded trail that parallels a seasonal stream (currently dry). Being that is it not too far from the Ocean, it should be cooler there than inland Los Angeles areas.
Directions: From the 405 Freeway, exit on Sunset going towards the beach, turn right on Mandeville Canyon, left on Westridge Road, left on Bayless, and left on Queensferry Road. Park near the gate. Please allow enough time to get there, find parking and begin the hike at 8:30AM. I will have some carpool space from Altadena, Glendale and Universal City Red Line station parking lot.
WHAT TO BRING: Comfortable hiking shoes, ample water, sun screen, insect repellant and something to snack on for an energy boost about midway.
