This is my go to night hike. Offers great views at night of Granada Hills, Sylmar and Northridge. Immediate access to the trail from the culdesac. Bring bug spray if you plan on doing the night outing.

This is a beautiful trail with a spectacular view of the city. The best time to come is after the rainy season when everything is green. It looks like Scotland it is so green!

To get the full experience of how incredibly beautiful this trail can get you have to come during or right after the rain season. Green as far as the eye can see!

I took this hike today, as an early evening hike, my first time up it. The climb is a steady wind up around the switchbacks, a constant incline of varying steepness, on a comfortably wide dirt walk, with a steeper, yet much shorter option, cutting through it. The workout is great either way, the easiest path being for all skill levels and anyone whose knees could handle it. It continues a little further once you hit the peak, Mission Point, following a gas companies fence. Theres an out cropping of paths to take, including connection to O'Melveny park, though this peak is much higher.

A bench is located in a nice spot shaded with trees, a rare respite from the sunlight if hiking earlier in the day, it was near dark during my visit. To my surprise, there was a seemingly crazy possibly homeless man talking to himself while camped at the bench, eating a melon and rambling. I also encountered fours others on this trail, all apparently normal people just there for recreation. A man was biking it and that looked tough and fun, yet doable, so I could recommend that activity for this trail as well.

Parking is available at the end on the street in a cul-de-sac, and there is immediate access to the trail there.
