Trail Overview

The Tule Divide is an easy, pretty drive through the Sierra Pelona Range. The trail mostly follows Burns Canyon Road and other forest routes, which can be linked to other local trails for more off-road enjoyment and sightseeing. On a clear day, you can see the Tehachapi Pass Wind Farm to the north, Santa Clarita to the south and the Bouquet Reservoir to the east. Access either end of the trail from San Francisquito Road. If attempting this trail in the winter or late rainy seasons, bring tire chains, as the asphalt on San Francisquito Canyon is subject to icing. High-clearance 2WD and 4WD vehicles recommended.

Difficulty

The road is well maintained, but be advised of small ledges and ruts during the rainy season.

History

As you approach the southern end of the trail, the Bouquet Reservoir is visible, along with piping for the Los Angeles Aqueduct, which provides a substantial amount of water to the large population in the Los Angeles area. The dam was completed in 1934.
