Event Description: Join us for a moderate paced 2 1/2 hour hike in the Santa Susana mountain range as we climb to the peak at Mission Point The hike is about 5.5 miles and has about 1400 Ft. of elevation gain.
Though it’s not as well-known as Griffith Park, the San Fernando Valley’s O’Melveny Park is actually the second largest park in the city of Los Angeles. While O’Melveny’s front area may seem to be a typical suburban park, it also serves as the gateway to a nice network of trails, culminating in Mission Point (elevation 2,771).
From the 118 freeway, take the Balboa Blvd. exit and head north (left if you’re coming from the west or right if from the east) and go 2.3 miles. Take a left on Senson Blvd. and drive 0.6 miles to the entrance of O’Melveny Park, on the right.
