Trail Overview

Take a quick, but pretty drive up to Burnt Peak. At 5,791' above sea level, this is the highest peak of the Sierra Pelona, which is one of the lower elevation ranges within California's Transverse Ranges. The ride to the top is relatively easy and can be done entirely in 2WD if the trail is dry. Make sure to bring a camera because the views from the top are breathtaking!
