Stough Park - TRAIL

Stough Park - Trail, Burbank, California

Gradual fireroad climb with a couple flat segments to regain energy. Good trail to do after work (or school) before it gets dark (or with a light it is awesome at night). Can be done in 35-40 at a fast pace. You can return the way you came or you have a lot of options once you are at the top (like down to Brand Park). It is a well kept fireroad, very clean.

Well maintained fire road and great views for an enjoyable climb. Fun single tracks for the descent.

Park at nature center. Can't miss the trailhead. Make right turns at all trail intersections to get to the towers.

Very smooth Single Track, Get a map from the nature center. Ride up to the La Tuna Single track, and ride it down to the 210, back up and down to the trailhead..

Good smooth uphill fire road, that is challenging at times, an intermediate rider would take around 45 minutes to reach the first set of radio towers at the top, this is of course if you started from the Stough Canyon Nature Center where the fire road begins. Once at the top, you have nice views of the Valley, as well as Los Angeles and on clear days, the Ocean and Catalina Island. Coming down you have plenty of options in every direction, from fire roads to single track trails.

This is a great network of trails if you have an hour or two to kill and want a good workout. You can stay on the fire road, or take some singletrack as well. Views are usually beautiful and nearly 360 degrees, and there is a nice picnic table at the top to the left of the 'T'. After the fire in Burbank two years ago there have been a few nasty downhill sections blazed that I'm afraid to walk up, let alone ride down but some freaks do it anyway. The nature center at the bottom of the trail/road is a fun place to check out as well, and offers restrooms and safe parking. Watch for singletrack along the road for a varied ride. In the summer time I have encountered a venomous snake (not Hilary Clinton) lounging on the road.

I like to go up to the 'T' (20 minutes) and then take a left to the picnic table and take a break. Turn around and take the singletrack marked by a small brown post on the right. You'll climb a few minutes, then drop off to a lower singletrack which takes you to the burned down boy scout camp marked by a chimney and foundation. Continue the single track down after pondering at the boy scout camp, and stay left at the intersection. Eventually you'll get back to the fire road and head back down the hill. This whole ride takes about 45 mins or an hour depending your fitness. Watch out for loudmouth liberals blocking your path. You'll note their anti war shirts and Volkswagens in the parking lot.
