“A loop hike into the Verdugo Mountain range, leaving and returning by the North and South Beaudry Motorways.”— William Lee
Most of the hike is on dirt fire roads until you reach the radio tower which is partly paved. I recommend doing the loop counterclockwise as mapped, as there are parts of the Beaudry South Motorway which are pretty steep on the ascent and there are sections of scree.
At the top of the Beaudry North Motorway, turn left onto Verdugo Motorway and continue the climb to the KROQ tower and lookout. Continuing on, follow Verdugo Motorway until it intersects with the Beaudry South Motorway for the return leg of the loop.
