Beale's Cut
This rich part of Santa Clarita's history could be easily overlooked, as it is hidden in the hillside off of Sierra Hwy. Completed in 1864 by E.F. Beale, Surveyor-General of California and Nevada, the cut through the mountains made a trecherous trip far less dangerous at this stretch for stages, cowpokes, herds, freight trains and settlers. Completed by hand with Chinese labor, it became known as "Beale's Cut" and has been used in numerous Western films.

Pacific Crest Trail
The PCT can be accessed on the north end of the Santa Clarita Valley in Agua Dulce. Another helpful website is The Southern California Segment of the PCT.


Thanks to Agua Dulce resident and PCT expert, Donna Saufley, we have these detailed instructions for you to access the PCT.

A trailhead parking area was recently constructed by the California Trail Users Coalition ("CTUC") where the trail crosses Soledad Canyon Road--near the Robin's Nest RV/Recreation park. It then travels northward until it goes under Hwy 14 through a tunnel, and comes out in Vasquez Rocks County Park. It runs through the park, and while there is no trailhead per se, the trail can be accessed in the park.

It exits Vasquez Rocks and makes a left on Escondido Canyon Road (on the road), and then makes a right at the stop sign onto Agua Dulce Canyon Road. It stays on the road for approximately 2.25 miles, where it crosses Sierra Highway, and makes a left onto Mint Canyon Road. It follows Mint Canyon for only a very short distance, and then makes a right onto Petersen Road. Within about 50 yards, there is a dirt road leading up to the right, as you're facing north. The PCT proceeds up this dirt road, where it forks underneath the power lines (take the road that goes down from there, not up). The foot trail resumes about ¼ mile up. There are markers indicating where the trail makes the turn onto the dirt road, and where the foot trail begins again.

From there the trail meanders through Mint Canyon, climbs the Sierra Pelona ridge, and drops down onto Bouquet Canyon, where it crosses and continues to San Francisquito Canyon Road.

Ygnacio's father, Antonio del ValIe, had been granted the 48,000+ acre Rancho San Francisco from Mexico, and after his death the ranch was divided among his heirs. Rancho Camulos is one of the oldest historic landmarks in the Santa Clarita Valley. It is located right off Hwy 126, technically located in Ventura County, but at the very heart of Santa Clarita's history.

St. Francis Dam
661-254-1275
By Michele E. Buttelman, Signal Features Editor: "The second worst disaster in California history began on March 12, 1928, near midnight, in the remote San Francisquito Canyon area of Saugus. The St. Francis Dam failed at 11:57:30, a time pegged to the loss of electricity from the Southern California Edison transmission lines to Lancaster. The dam's reservoir of 12.5 billion gallons of water poured down the narrow canyon, initially in a 140-foot-high wall of water, and swept nearly 500 men, women and children to their deaths. In California history, only the 1906 San Francisco earthquake killed more people. It was a disaster of epic proportions, one that remains largely unpublicized and unknown, today. As the flood carved out a path to the sea, it lay waste to Castaic Junction, Piru, Fillmore, Santa Paula and Saticoy before emptying into the Pacific Ocean, more than 50 miles away, near Ventura."

Every year on the anniversary of the tragedy, the SCV Historical Society offers a lecture and escorts visitors to the site for a tour.

Youth Grove Memorial
Too many of our young people have been lost to vehicle accidents. They have been memoralized in a lovely grove under the oak trees in Central Park. Each stump holds the name of a person who's life was cut short in an auto accident. (Park near basketball hoops, then proceed on the walking path behind the all-purpose fields of the park.)
