Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

Quick trip out to Saddle Peak East and Saddle Peak West; trailhead about 1/2 hour from home. The driving directions in the LPC Peak Guide are inaccurate; in the first bullet, driving 0.6 miles actually takes you to Valmar Street(?), turn right here and the road becomes "Old Topanga Canyon Road". From here, drive to Mulholland Hwy and turn right, then drive 3.8 miles (not 5.7) and turn left onto Stunt Road. Travel on Stunt road and park at first pull out beyond mile post 2.83. A signed trailhead leading to Pluma Road is on the south side of the road; start hiking up this trail and then proceed as indicated in Peak Guide.

Very windy up top. Mileage/gain/time includes round trip to Saddle Peak East and Saddle Peak West.
