Explore the Verdugo Crest Trail

Verdugo Crest Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Verdugo Crest Trail, located in Brand Park outside of downtown LA, is perfect for hiking, trail running, birding, and dog walkers.

The Verdugo Crest Trail is a 6.6 mile loop near Glendale, California. The trail features lovely wildflowers in the spring and beautiful views year-round. The trail is steep, so make sure you are wearing sturdy running or walking shoes. Dogs are allowed on the trail but must be kept on leash. 

Various trails allow for hikers and trail runners to customize their route to the top. The Verdugo Crest Trail is lightly trafficked, so you'll be able to find solace in some solitude. The trail offers very little shade, so wear adequate sun protection and bring extra water (especially in the summer).
