Saturday May 12, 2018 NEW HIKE: Burnt Peak 5771' from 7N23/ Sawmill Motorway pad (Lake Hughes area)
NOTE: Read meeting spot/ transport details carefully as there is car consolidation/ shuttle involved.

Distance: ~ 5.5 miles, Out and Back (with shuttle to trailhead).

Gain/ Loss: 700 Gain/ 200 Loss, over short distances

Rating: Moderate + (there are several steep stretches that will really get your heart pumping) - you need to be in good physical condition for this hike.

Time: ~ 3.0 hours hiking

Description: If you enjoy an expansive uninterrupted view from one of the higher peaks in the area and meeting no one else on a backcountry trail in the Angeles Forest, this is a hike is for you.
There will also be 3 miles of off-road thrills each way getting to/ from the trailhead.

Meet your leader:
There are several options to get there, see below and pick one.

Valley/ South SCV Folks:
Meet at Towsley Canyon / Rivendale Park, The Old Road, Newhall, CA at 7:00 AM.

Directions to Towsley Canyon Carpooling spot:
Exit the I-5 freeway in Santa Clarita Valley at Calgrove Blvd. Turn West and follow Calgrove around a curve and through one light. You will now see the gate to Towsley Canyon on your right. Park and look for group of hikers/ leader.

At 7:15AM SHARP we will leave Towsley Canyon to drive North, caravan style in your car, via Castaic and up picturesque Lake Hughes Road to the hike "meeting spot".

(Google Maps link to the destination - "Hike Meeting Spot").

North Santa Clarita folks and Towsley caravan:
Drive to the "Hike Meeting Spot" (Bushnell Summit Parking Lot, on Pine Canyon Road, link above), Take the 5 North and get off at Exit 176B, Lake Hughes Road/ Castaic. Turn right at bottom of ramp, (McDonalds will be at the first light, on left). Go straight through light, following Lake Hughes Road, for 22.9 miles from McDonalds out of town to Lake Hughes. At the junction of Lake Hughes Road and Pine Canyon Road, turn left and head 5 miles North out Pine Canyon Road to the Bushnell Summit/ 7N23 parking lot on the left.

Acton/ Palmdale folks: Drive West to Lake Hughes, through town and after the junction with Lake Hughes Road (on left), continue straight, now on Pine Canyon Road, for 5 miles to the "Hike Meeting spot" (link above).

"The Plan":
We need as many folks as possible who have an AWD / pick up truck to drive to the meeting spot where we will consolidate to shuttle everyone up forest road 7N23 to the trailhead (we may need to get cozy). We will leave to drive to the trailhead at 8:30AM.
I have driven my Subaru up this road twice with no problems and have even seen a sedan or 2 up there.

Dogs: OK, but must be on a leash and well behaved around other dogs and people with hiking poles. If you bring a dog, please drive yourself.

Adventure pass: Not required.

BRING: Hiking Poles, snacks and at least 3L of water including some electrolytes, camera, hat and sunscreen. Hiking shoes/boots with good tread! Bring layers in case it is windy. Poles recommended.

Leader's note: There are no restrooms at the trailhead and no facilities between the meeting spot and the trailhead, so plan accordingly. McDonalds in Castaic is a good bet.

Leader: Steve I.
