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.

a very peaceful hike we never saw anyone else

Good trail width and well kept. Steady incline the whole way with consistent features with a small shaded bench at the end. Not much payoff but great for an easy straight trail run up and down. Boring if you like canyons, trees, waterfall hikes.

cool dams in the beginning. immediate incline to the top. cool views too.

it's moderate decent hike, make sure you have your long sleeve on since you gonna have marks otherwise, so much outgrown vegetation. but a great experience, very nice senary

A very pretty route, but very overgrown for half the route=scratches on arms and face. Be prepared for 90% uphill grind on your way back to the highway.

Nice and clean but the heart trail, view is so beautiful I breed a lot of water because later in the afternoon it get very hot.

Great trail! Slightly narrow at times, definitely not for the timid. Wonderful views!
