This is an alternate route up to Tongva Peak. From the meeting spot, we will walk up Beaudry Terrace, make a left onto Barnes Circle, take a left at Oakmont View Drive, continuing up the curvy steep street until we approach and pass Oakmont View Park and the tennis court. After squeezing pass the gate will we reach the Edison Trailhead. From there, we will ascend the steep ridge towards Beaudry North fire road, turn right and proceed to Tongva Peak.
We will take a well-deserved 10-15 minute break, enjoy the view and refuel, then head back on Beaudry South.
Edison Ridge is steep, but the 1/2 mile trek up the streets to the trailhead will have you sweating bullets even before we start the climb to the top.
What to bring:
3l water, poles, sun screen, energy gels and electrolytes, pain relievers, etc.
