    Route Description for Condor Peak Trail

    For those intrepid Southern California adventurers who want to endure a long and gruelling day on the trails, the Condor Peak Trail is an amazing route to explore. Be sure to bring poles for stability, and microspikes if you are planning to hike in the winter.

    Setting out from the trailhead on Big Tujunga Canyon Road, you will follow the path as it leads to the northeast and immediately begins climbing uphill. The incline here is a steady one for the majority of the hike, so take your time as you work your way into the mountains and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    Eventually, the route will bend to the northwest and the terrain will become more rugged and steep. Here, you will need to traverse a false summit, before pushing onto the summit of Condor Peak for some incredible views. After a rest, carefully head back along the same trail to descend the mountainside.

    Getting to the Condor Peak Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Condor Peak Trail can be found next to the Big Tujunga Fire Station along Big Tujunga Canyon Road.
