“many excellent hiking trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

This is one of our favorite hiking wilderness park. There are 2 parking lots but you do have to get there early to snag a spot especially during the weekends. The rest-rooms are conveniently located right across the parking lot.
Spring is the best time to hike here as you'll get to enjoy many varieties of wildflowers in bloom. Many locals walk their dogs here so they have doggie-pooper bag dispensers situated by the entrance to the park.

“Great Hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a great wilderness park in the north park of Glendale. One of the best things about this park is that it is FREE! Things I like, the various picnic areas, clean bathrooms, numerous hiking trails based on your skill and athletic ability. Lastly, the scenic views for picture taking are pretty amazing. Dislikes, the smokers and visitors that forget what trash cans are for. Overall, a great place to visit.

“Beatiful Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Lovely wilderness park on the outskirts of L.A. No one seems to know this park exists because there are so few people who go, but it is a gorgeous place. Wonderful hiking trails, a beautiful old stone barn, lovely picnic areas, and views, views, view. From some spots, you can see the ocean and the skyline of L.A. in the distance. Great place for a lovely hike, or a nice picnic with friends, and I've been several times, but never experienced any crowding.

“Not much here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2012

This is not really a "wilderness" park. It is situated a half-a-mile or so from houses. The surrounding area of the park was severely burned by fire several years ago, so it is rather bare. Trails lead from the park and go up into the mountains. I suppose long hikes into the mountains would take one to more wilderness-type areas, however, short hikes will not get you very far and certainly not into a beautiful terrain area.

There is some historical structures on the site, but they are not open to the public.

“Once Tiburio Vasquez walked this park.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

The rumor when the park opened was that the bandit Tiburio Vasquez hid in the hills in the 1800's. I can imagine why, the view over the valley is great and it is a pleasant place to have a picnic.
