Trail Overview

This is an off-road connector between Lake Hughes Road and the Liebre Mountain and Sawmill Motor Way (USFS Route 7N23). It takes you through the western Sierra Pelona Range, which is the lower elevation mountain range in western Los Angeles County, California. Much of this area was burned in the Lake Fire of 2020, so you will see a large amount of burnt trees and resurgent undergrowth.
