Called the crown jewel of Verdugo Hills, the La Tuna singletrack descent offers a trail with tunnel-like lush vegetation, picturesque little streams, together with some narrow paths to challenge your bike handling skills. The ride starts by climbing the Hostetter fireroad which offers outstanding views of the San Gabriel Valley, Burbank, Glendale, Sunland Valley, Mt. Lukens, and beyond. A spin along the Verdugo Motorway leads you to the La Tuna Canyon singletrack. DIRECTIONS: Take the I-210 freeway to La Tuna Canyon Rd. in La Crescenta. Directly opposite the eastbound I-210 off-ramp is a gated road with parking.
