Santa Susana Pass Park and Mt Rexmore Loop, maybe a waterfall

Lots of Rocks and 2 Hills to Climb

DISTANCE: 6 miles or so

DIFFICULTY: medium; included rock scrambling and climbing a rocky hillside

LOCATION: go WEST OF Topanga CANYON on Lassen Street for 1 mile until it ends at Oakwood Cemetery and turn left on Andora Avenue. To the left of the cemetery entrance is the trailhead. We then go to the labyrinth rock, climb around a bit, then climb the waterfall trail up to Lilac lane, then climb up to Mt Rexmore/the north 2 peaks of Chatsworth Peak (900 feet elevation gain from where we park), then drop down (600 feet) to Lilac Lane at Santa Susana Pass Road, and walk south up Lilac lane back to the Stagecoach trail and go down to the starting spot.

Liability Waiver must be signed by all participants who go on this hike, as Mt. Rexmore is private property which we use with permission
