O’Melveny to East Canyon
Mileage: 14 miles (if you go all the way to the 7 mile turn-around-point where you can refill water at the church)
Elevation gain: 3,109 ft
O’Melveny is in Santa Susanna Mtns, so not near Wilson. This route is out and back. Max 14 miles. It’s San Fernando Valley, so it could be hot in summer. At the start is a parking lot and bathrooms. The parking gate is open at 7am.
At mile 3 is Mission Point. 2nd highest in Santa Susanna (#3 is Rocky Peak). It’s flattish until mile 4.5. So, if it’s too hot, people can do 6-9 miles. If you go past mile 4.5, you’re on the Santa Clarita side of the mountain (5 Fwy side).
