This is a great trail! Challenging ascent, but it goes by in 30-40 minutes (moving along) and lands you at the top of an incredible view of the valley and downtown LA.

Loved this trail. Park in dirt lot which is in between wildwood park and golf course. Trail starts on left just after entrance. Get your climbing shoes on. Big ups for 1st mile then you see sign for Vital Link and you turn left. Tight technical switchbacks. Great views of LA and Burbank and the canyon and hidden houses etc. continues to climb to the top and then back down same route. Close to 4 miles. Difficult and awesome. I ran much of this beast
