Surprisingly nice hike close to the SCV and SFV. The first mile or so, the noise from the freeway and gun range are inescapable, but after that, it quiets down. There are great views of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill (which I find oddly interesting), the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys, and on a clear day, the DTLA skyline. There seems to be a tree farm, with water tanks and irrigated oaks. I hiked up to the saddle at Jones Junction and turned around, though you can continue down to East Canyon or west to Mission Point.
