The Stough Canyon nature Center parking lot is open from sunrise - sunset. If you plan to stay or arrive beyond that, park on the street just outside of the lot

Description

Starting at the Stough Canyon Nature Center, the fire road zigs steeply up the side of the canyon. At the lower intersection with Old Youth Camp Trail (Scout Trail), the grade mellows a little and stays in the shade of the ridge in the afternoon, making for a very pleasant ascent to the Verdugo Motorway.
