Ed S. on Old Stagecoach Road
Hiked from the bottom trailhead where Valley Circle, Lassen, and Baden cross, to the top trailhead on Lilac Lane. At the top you can see the San Fernando and Simi Valleys. The historical marker is along the trail at (34.261553,-118.628923). A great family hike, but 650 feet of elevation change is not for out-of-condition hikers.
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 trail itself is amazing. I love that it's not one designated path, and you can explore/climb rocks and go wherever you want. My only issue is all the destruction that had been caused by people not taking care of the place. There is trash and broken glass everywhere, as well as graffiti. The glass is a safety hazard, and much of the graffiti is some type of profanity, so I would be hesitant to bring children along on this one. I just wish people weren't so rude and destructive. Super unfortunate what has happened to it.
