Trail Overview

This easy route begins just east of Lake Hughes in remote northern Los Angeles County, California, and connects the area to the Tule Divide trail. The drive is a mostly uneventful climb with pretty views of the Leona and Antelope Valleys. You may encounter ruts and loose rocks, but neither are challenging enough to require four-wheel drive.


Most sections are smooth, but a few sections are rutted with loose rocks.
