A trek along the new eastern loop among the rocks that overlook the San Fernando Valley, followed by the usual 2 1/2 mile western loop trail. First loop is walking on rocks a lot. Nothing too wild except the picture you see below, which is optional if you don't like cool ledges. Loop #2 is all civilized trail.
ELEVATION GAIN: not much, about 100 feet on each loop
NO ROPES ARE REQUIRED--KIND OF LIKE MY TREKS TO VASQUEZ ROCKS PARK
Dogs are allowed here on leash
BELOW: THE LEDGE OF DOOM
DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD: from Valley Circle Blvd. in the West San
Fernando Valley, go uphill 2 miles on Woolsey canyon road and at top of
hill, turn right at Sage Ranch sign, and the parking lot is on the left
in 1/4 mile. Park in dirt lot next to the road. Parking is free here.
(If you drive up the road inside the park to the top, you have to pay to
park there. So don't unless you like giving the government your money)

NOTE, THE EASTERN LOOP IS A BIT LONGER THAN ON THIS MAP, AS I'VE EXPLORED MORE OF THE EASTERN MESA SINCE MAKING THIS MAP
