Verdugo Peak

The highest peak in the Verdugo Mountain Range located just north and west of downtown Los Angeles. At 3,126 feet above sea level the peak is modest compared to neighboring peaks in the San Gabriel Range but offers spectacular views of the Los Angeles basin with vistas stretching all the way to Santa Catalina Island more than 26 miles into the Pacific Ocean. Occasionally snow dusts the highest of the peaks but only for a short time making for beautiful closeups of winter in Southern California....

    It's not a particularly difficult climb by any stretch of the imagination but it's certainly worth the time and effort. climbing in the fall or early winter is the best as skies are generally clear...
