I finally found the Stagecoach plaque! There is another trail head on Andora Ave. for Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park. There are trail maps but the plaque is not marked on the paper map. I used this existing trail map on this app and just started walking making my best guesses until my hike intersected the app's trail. Awesome view!

The scenery was beautiful but I got very turned around with all the little trails going off in different directions. Enter the trail on Larwin off of Devonshire. Part of the trail was paved. I would do this again at a later time.

About as neat as a trail in Los Angeles Incorporated can get. Sunrise views are pretty epic.

I hiked this trail ever since i could hike! since i was like 4 or 5. i know the chatsworth mountains like the back of my hand! in high school my friends and i would ditch class and smoke pot in these hidden areas i found for us. we called them our secret spots. I remember once i was so upset with my family that I ran away with a sleeping bag some food and a back pack full of my camping gear and stayed in the mountains for 3 days and 2 nights. i found some amazing spots there. i could never get lost there. i was always comfortable. as i got older my friends and I dropped acid here and over all enjoyed our adventures in nature. we almost never stuck to any specific trail we would just have a blast and find new spots! this is home for me. i cant believe i moved so far away from here… i miss it sooo much. damn, i just made my self cry. ='( home sick!

This is one of my favorite local trails, since it's not too far from where I live. Lots of cool rock formations to climb on, nice views and other little hiking trails to discover. There is no shade, so get there early! The hills aren't too steep so it's an easy to moderate hike depending on which trails you take. Being plenty of water and sunscreen. Not many hikers around here, so it's a pretty peaceful hike.

This is a very nice trail; great views, awesome history and well maintained. In fact the whole Santa Susana State Park is very nice - lots of trails criss-crossing everywhere. Great for dogs - but watch out for rattlers!

This is a nice little jaunt, not too difficult. There are a lot of cool rock formations. The route shown by AllTrails meanders a bit, I take a straighter path and measured my round trip to the marker (the white sign) and back at 2.5 miles.

I like this hike for historical value. It started as an old Indian footpath, and "served as the main commercial overland route between Los Angeles and San Francisco between 1861 and 1875, with three stages a week leaving Los Angeles. Although the journey north was about 400 miles and took three days, the most difficult part was crossing the Santa Susanas."
