This is fun hike that takes you through Mentryville "ghost town" where you can explore some old historic buildings and keep on a paved road for the first mile or so (very easy for novice hikers as well) before starting the trail up and gradually gaining about 1200' elevation over 2.5 miles (moderate). Beautiful views of Santa Clarita at the top. 
Parking is free at the gate (when arriving off of Pico Canyon) and is along the road - no permit required. This is where we are meeting! (There is about 0.3 mile walking off this gate to the trail head on a paved road - there is parking there as well but have to pay $5 for it, and this is NOT where we will meet originally. However, if you choose to pay the $5 and wait for us at the trail head - that is up to you ).
