LA TUNA TRAVERSE AND VERDUGO PEAK (3,126')

O:20s30s40s LA TUNA TRAVERSE AND VERDUGO PEAK (3,126').

Moderate 9.5 mi R/T, 2,050ft gain hike through shaded canyons to an overlook of the San Fernando Valley, on easy trails and fire roads.

Never heard of these places? That's because we are again venturing outside of OC to the Verdugo Hills northeast of Los Angeles for some new scenery!

Bring 3qts water, lunch, snacks, hat, sunscreen, hiking boots, and $$ for optional dinner afterwards. Heavy rain cancels.

Meet at 8am at North OC Carpool Point, one hour drive. Return 6pm.

Leader: Charles G. Geller ([masked]). Coleader:Kenadi Le ([masked])

    Great hike. Beautiful day and scenery. Felt bad for slowing group down because my bad knees started acting up.

    Hi guys, thank you for finding my lost phone, I was going to bushwhacking once more the same trail tomorrow :) I did some short-cut hiking after the group hike. I noticed I dropped something over the trail but couldn't see what was that, kept running behind the first group.

  • Charles G. G.

    That is the correct parking lot

  • James H.

    I believe this is the parking lot: http://goo.gl/maps/A0ITr

    Trailhead parking lot is at 8000 La Tuna Canyon Road, Sun Valley.
    There are two ways to get the to trailhead:
    (1)La Tuna Canyon Exit off Rte 210
    (2)Sunland Blvd Exit off Rte 5

    (1)Exit Hwy 210 North at La Tuna Canyon Road. Reset your trip odometer at the end of the offramp. Turn left and go under the freeway. As you descend the windy hill, there will be two small parking lots on the left side of the road - one at 1 mile past the exit, and one at 1.3 miles past the exit. Turn left into the second parking lot, at 1.3 miles. There will be a brown sign that says "santa monica mountains conservancy." if you reach homes on the left, you have gone too far.

    (2)Exit Hwy 5 at Sunland Blvd. Go north to La Tuna Canyon Road. Reset your trip odometer. Turn right at La Tuna Canyon road and go 3.3 miles to the parking lot on the right that says "Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy." If you reach the Foothill freeway, you have gone too far.

    My cellphone number is (714) 292 - 2352

    March 8, 2013

  • Charles G. G.

    Elisa, this would not be a dog-suitable hike.

    March 6, 2013

  • Sally

    I want to meet at the trailhead or in the parking lot in La Tuna. Where is the best place to meet up? Will you be there at 9am?

    Looking forward to the hike. :)

    Would it be possible for me to bring my sweet, well behaved, little, yellow lab? I understand if not, it's just that we are kind of joined at the hip. Plus if she were to find out I went on a hike without her, I would never get out of trouble!

    In case if you need a guide, I live in Burbank and hiked over Verdogos hundred times :)
