About the hike:
In the 1950s, San Vicente Mountain served as a mountaintop military installation to defend Los Angeles from soviet missile attacks. Today, the 1,960-foot peak provides visitors with a look back at this chapter in the city’s history, along with a great view of West LA and the Santa Monica Mountains. Westridge Fire Road leads to San Vicente Mountain and is a popular path for mountain bikers, trail runners, and dog walkers (dogs are permitted off-leash in Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park under their owner’s supervision). The hike is about 7 miles and provides 730 feet of elevation gain.
After enjoying San Vicente Mountain, we will return the way we came to complete this 7.4-mile hike with 730 feet of elevation gain. Friends and Dogs are welcome. No fee or permit is required, so get out and enjoy!
The trailhead is at the southern end of Reseda Boulevard. From 101, take Reseda exit and go south from the freeway. Drive past the Braemar County Club all the way to the end of Reseda Blvd. You can park at the very end in the paid portion of the parking or a little below where you don’t have to pay.
