Yesterday I hiked the difficult trail up to the radio towers and came down via the Brand Motorway. The entire trek took three hours to complete. I took in the sights for a few mins at the top of the hill and walked at about a 20 min mile pace going down. I'd expect others to require three hours to complete the same route unless they jog to speed things up. Keep this in mind as you plan your day.

This was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon hiking with my best friend. We went on a Saturday afternoon in September. The sun was blazing which made it slightly uncomfortable, but we made it to one of the peaks in under an hour. At the trails beginning there are pretty nice public restrooms and water fountains. There is also a wonderful view and tons of picnic tables around there. When we were leaving there was a wedding happening next to this large old house at the beginning of the trail.

There is a 2 mile trail system for hiking only which traverses the Burbank side of the Verudgo Mountains

Since I discover this magical place last year I have been hiking here at least twice a month. Simple. Really steep uphill for 2 miles up and fast steep coming down for another 2 miles. You get kick ass workout here. Hands down. This place never let you down. You get to see amazing view at the top but also you never lose sight of LA view while you come down. Cons- no shades. Try get there in the morning or late in the evening. You might get to see amazing sunset.
