Socal - Los Angeles County - Tujunga NickNames: #OakSpringTrail(southHalf)
Get off the 210 at Sunland. Take a left on Oro Vista.
When Oro Vista merges with Mt. Gleason, keep your
eyes out for the Oro Vista continuation on the left.
Park where Oro Vista meets Mt. Gleason (crossing the
wash). Oro Vista is private, so you will need to bike
Bike up Oro Vista, staying pretty much straight until it
ends. Take a left, and the trailhead is just ahead on the
This fire road climbs gently for the first mile. You will
need to stay left at the first junction (straight
dead-ends), then bear right at the next three fire road
intersections as the road gets steeper and looser. You
will meet the descending Oak Springs trail in two
places as well, but I do not recommend ascending due
to the loose soil and overall steepness of the trail.
After about 4.5 miles of climbing, you will reach the
ridge. Oak Springs Trail descends on your right. (The
north half of Oak Springs descends from the left side of
the fire road about 50 feet ahead, I have not taken it).
Oak Springs was recently bulldozed, so it is not
technical in terms of rocks, but it is steep and has very
loose soil. You will descend about 1.5-2 miles to the
fireroad you rode up on. You can continue to the bottom
the way you came, or explore some more singletrack
that snakes around near the bottom of the canyon.
