Starting at the end of Whiting Woods Road, passing through the locked gate you quickly start climbing, 2.604 miles to go. It is fairly steep consequently there are fewer mountain bikes common at other hikes in the Verdugos. The road starts out steep, get used to it, this is going to be the tempo for most of this hike, though the lower mile is generally less steep than higher up. There are many cross country cutoffs, which cuts off long switchbacks, shortening the return trip or steepening the uphill. Arriving at Verdugo Motorway there are many options, continuing straight will take you to an electronic site with views of the San Fernando Valley, & Los Angeles Basin. A short way to the right is a bench if you're inclined to rest and take in the view, or just turn around and go back the way you came.Show more

The Verdugo Fireroad (topo says Chandler Motorway) begins here, and goes east to near Glendale Community College. Difficulty is easy, but can be made more difficult by increasing speed and/or distance. This can be linked with close to a dozen other trails along the way. Show more
