Not many small or medium-sized cities can boast of three mountain ranges within its border, but Glendale, California, does. Stretching east and north from the San Fernando Valley, the city takes in substantial parts of the San Rafael Hills and the Verdugo Mountains, plus a small slice of the San Gabriel Mountains at the city's northern extremity. At this northernmost spot in Glendale, overlooking the foothill communities of La Crescenta and Tujunga, lies Deukmejian Wilderness Park, named after former California governor George Deukmejian. The park's 700 acres of chaparral-covered slopes are drained by two ravines with steep gradients: Cooks Canyon and Dunsmore Canyon. During the mid-20th Century, the area alongside the Dunsmore Canyon stream was used by the Le Mesnager family as a vineyard. An old stone barn at the trailhead is reminiscent of that time.

Nice easy to moderate trail, pretty views and wildflowers. Didn't complete the last 1.5-2 miles due to so much poison oak along the trail - wear pants!

Based upon what others have written in terms of the Yerba Buena Ridge.

Haven't done this trail since all of the recent rains. There was water in the stream and the trail was very overgrown. Great hike that has sun, shade and amazing views on clear days.

Awesome views of the LA basin and part of the San Fernando valley from this trail.

Nice place. Bring lots of sunblock, it's best to be half way done before the heat hits you. We started at 7am and got a nice view. They also have pretty clean restroom and parking lot.
