Park on Beaudry Blvd, a quarter of a mile west of the Oakmont Country Club. At the beginning, the fire road runs next to a large water catchment basin. After about half a mile from the trailhead, Beaudry Fire Road splits into its north and south segments. Both segments lead to either end of the Verdugo Motorway (Beaudry North Fire Road to the north end of the Verdugo Motorway and Beaudry South Fire Road leading to the south end).
The north fire road is well maintained, wide, and about a third of the time you are protected from the sun (in the winter time). There are several spots where you can stop and admire the view of the San Gabriel Mountains and San Gabriel Valley.
