Wow, it is a quiet place but beautiful view. You don't get a clear shot of LA due to the hill blocking the view but still gorgeous. There is a small grassy area and picnic tables and restrooms. Trails start from here but didn't have a chance to hike any yet. Looking forward to heading back!

Lived in the area for three months and for two months Mon-Fri cycled almost the length of New York, then up the ramp to Deuk parking lot....then ran the Mes Loop. I'm no spring chicken (60) and there's a great selection of easy to extreme gradients to suit everyone. Never got bored with the run or the views. Stunning. Got... More

Deukmejian Wilderness Park is a really nice place that we enjoy taking our dog (on leash) The lower grassy areas are very pleasant, and then the hikes up the hill quickly reach some beautiful vistas. We especially like the fairly short walk up to the shady oak tree. We are so happy that Joy, and artfromtheashes.org chose to help rehabilitate... More

When city life gets to me, I come here. The view alone can soothe your soul. It is a great place to hike, picnic, or just check out from the daily grind.

This park have several hiking trails, but one main is used generally. The hike is on the hillside above some soccer field and other sports complex. It is a handy neighborhood place to walk or hike, not a touristy spot.

Nice little park but I used it as a starting point for a few serious hikes. The best one is to take the Crescenta View trail up to Mt. Lukens road, then go west to Lukens, then three more miles west and catch the Rim Of The Valley trail back to Deukmejian park. Total time 4.5 hours, total distance 9.5... More

I enjoy the views of the surrounding cities and you are above the hussel and bussel of it all. Good place to picnic and to chill.

I have been visiting this park for over 20 years and love being there. In the winter there is snow on the upper trails (a treat for us So Cal folks), and in the summer the trails offer great views and easy walking hikes.

Great view on a clear day. We take the dogs and have lunch on the well maintained benches. There is a nice patch of grass which is nice to lay a blanket down to stretch out for a nice nap. There are bathrooms available, and lovely flora to admire along the pathways. We enjoy hiking up the hill a bit... More
