Trail shared by Dave Gregg

An easy, but steep fire road climb to the top with incredible views of LA and the mountains.

Description

The wide dirt road mildly slopes upward for a mile. Near the end of that mile, ignore the trail split on the right, staying left on Rose Hills Fire Rd. It gets steep for the next 3/4 mile where there'll be four truck-sized switchbacks and a crumbling section of old pavement at the end. Here the trail splits, left and right. Go right, toward the tower high up on a hill.

At the base of that hill, take the easier left split and push hard for 1/2 mile to the high point just below the tower. Visit if you want, I usually don't. Continue straight, now downhill, and follow the road to a chain link fence and go right.
