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.

St. Francis Dam
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."

to the public. Fans of western art will find many of their favorites here, including works done by Charles Russell, Joe De Young, Charles
Christadoro, and Frederic Remington. Movie props from the 1920s and authentic native American artifacts are also found throughout the museum.
Make a day of your visit-take the kids to the petting zoo, ogle the buffalo grazing on the property, and enjoy a picnic under a shade tree.

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.)
