North bound Desoto Avenue from the 188Fwy turns into Browns Road. Drive about one mile north to the park entrance. Various well groomed trials for hiking or mountain biking await.

Road to the peak is fenced off with "No Trespassing" signs near the top, so the actual peak is unreachable. Path crosses property marked as private at least once. Ranger told me it's OK to walk the road but not to wander off it.

Started mountain biking at the gated trailhead and hooked left at the sandy parking area for a climb up to the top. The climb was rutted out and sandy with a bit of walking but decent double-trak at the top. Sticking to the right seemed to be the best for biking.

Great workout with awesome views of the San Fernando Valley and a small chunk of Simi. Well groomed, but lightly used trails. Great for hikes or day out on the bike. For the best views, take the paved fire road to the summit which sits at just over 3700 ft.
