Verdugo Routes

Thinking about heading up the Verdugos Saturday. I've done the Beaudry Loop, as well as my favorite - Brand Park ridge - but I'd like to add in a few other routes - preferably ridge routes. I've noticed some potential ones on google earth but don't know if any of these are popular. any suggestions?

Here is one I invented.  It was popular enouth with me to do once.  I have mixed in the pieces of it with oter loops many times.

I've hiked a bit in the Verdugos....

I have a map I made similar to the one available at the Stough Cyn Nature Center

Several routes come to mind, I use

    Whiting Woods Loop
    Hostetter / La Tuna Loop
    Brand / Las Flores loop


Having recently joined the ranks of unemployed, I'll have to be sticking closer to home

Numerous oneway trips come to mind

Whiting woods to Brand Park from WW / Henderson Cyn East  firebreak to Brand Cyn west ridge and out to the park



Another epic bushwhack is in the offing too

The ridge dividing the the North and south forks of Henderson cyn will be done this year, 10+ years ago I worked on cutting a path down to about 2000ft level

The east ridge of Wildwood Cyn has called to me too, and I want to go back and look for more of the DC-3 from Januaray 1945 crash

A Beaudry / Deer Creek loop is on my list

Wildwood road is one I've put off for years too

I have a trans-verdugo Mtn Bike ride on 10/10? or is it 10/24 I forget. But Las Flores Mtrwy to Edmore Pl

And anything else I can dream up!

The firebreak that follows the electrical towers just north of beaudry

awesome, thanks!

what do the blue/red diamond marks indicate?

i'm liking that "West Ridge" option. do you know how brushy that is? I'd like to not bushwack.

The blue/red diamonds are waypoints

I haven't been there recently but, the area burned in 2006? Low Brush / Ticks would be the worst of it

There are a few very steep / loose places but it's not bad (dangerous)

This map has some good stuff:

If you prefer pdf, here's a pdf of the map that HikeUp posted:  http://www.lamountains.com/maps/StoughWildwoodVerdugo.pdf

The first link above shows the ridge trail that goes from La Tuna Canyon Road to Fire Warden's Grove.  This to me is a nice albeit short training hike since it ascends far more quickly than the La Tuna Canyon Trail.
