Starting at the Zoo in Griffith Park head through Glendale and on to Big Tujunga. At the turnoff from Foothill Blvd. stop at the market and fill up with water before the climb up to the Hidden Creek Cafe. About 1 mile further to the first right onto Upper Big Tujunga then a 9 mile ride to Angeles Crest. Big Tujunga is a well maintained road and goes through to Angles Crest (even though this map doesn't look like it). After the right onto Angeles Crest about 2 miles to Red Box Road and up to Mt. Wilson. There is water a the top just inside the gates or the ranger station at Red Box has a fountain or bottled water for sale. Heading down from Mt. Wilson back to Glendale is a great descent and was recently repaved (as of 03/07). Head back the way you came to Griffith Park to finish off an epic day of climbing. Enjoy!
