Description

This 5.6-mile road is a fire road that starts in Tujunga and ends at Mt. Lukens. The road intersects with Sister Elsie Trail several times, and has a couple of spur trails. Just follow the main road as it steadily climbs at a gentle grade up to the summit.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

Poodle-dog bush is abundant. This plant causes a rash similar to poison oak or poison ivy when it touches skin. Wear long sleeves and pants if you hike in the area.
