This week we have an intermediate hike, starting from Stough Canyon Nature Center in Burbank. This peaceful, sun-baked trail in the Verdugo Mountains follows a gradual incline along a well maintained fire road to an elevation of 1,000 feet. Benches donated by local community groups dot the trail, so hikers can rest or just take some time to soak up the prime viewpoints.
We will go up following some really nice trails with spectacular views of the San Fernando valley and a few surprises on the way. We will then make a turn towards “the book”, a small hill with a desk and a book where you can write your name and some of your deepest thoughts for posterity, we’ll also share some healthy snacks. We will then go back down following the fire road.
This hike will take us about 1 1/2 or 2 hours depending on our pace. Dogs are welcome. Please be there a few minutes earlier so we can stretch and be on our way right after.
This will be a short hike but a good workout, if anyone needs a bit extra after we finish, they can always go up the fire road to the towers and come back down again. there’s no getting lost up there.
