Not everyone knows that Mount Lukens is the highest point in the Angeles National Forest, and even if you do, you might want to hike there from this lovely park. And you have two routes to choose from, one easterly and one westerly, each providing...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.

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.
