Ascent Trip ReportCommunity Hiking Club of Santa Clarita. Dianne Erskine-Hellrigel actually led, replacing listed leader. Trailhead was Golden Valley Ranch Open Space, ~2 miles east of Placerita Canyon Park main entrance. A reporter and a photographer from the S Clarita Valley Signal documented the first part, mainly a visit to the ruins of Walker's first home near our trailhead.
This is the highest point within the city limits of Santa Clarita. Locals call it Horse Peak.
Lots of good folks, including a Jim Hazard and his very nice dog Kodi.
