ScottWhitneyBoundLukens Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 15, 2015


Went up Dunsmore Canyon/Crescenta View and down Cook's Canyon/Rim of the Valley. Nearly 10 miles in about 4 hours. Watch out for Poodle Dog Brush on the Cook's Canyon side!

wordlessnatureMany paths  Sucess!


I have been up this mountain on 4-5 different routes. Haines and Stone Canyons are both excellent hikes, along with Deukmejian Park. Personal favorite is a 14 mile loop via Contemplation Trail up the west ridge and back down via Haines...

Evening/night hike during the week. Enjoyed walking the abandoned road in the dark and chatting with friends. Nice views of the city lights at the top.

Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2012


I have been up many different routes to this mountain. This route is fun. It was also nice going up from the back-side before the Station Fire, but I have not been up that way since the fire. The views from the summit, on a clear day, are memorable.

2nd day of Christmas workout. The Crescenta View trail down was really overgrown, resulting in some unanticipated scratches.

Date Climbed: May 12, 2012


Followed the Crescenta View Trail from the Dunsmore Cyn side. The trail goes up fast but is overgrown and in a few places, very loose with long drops. I made good time and the weather was sunny but pleasant. Visited Mt Wilson afterwards.

A nice hike up, but it was a pretty damn hot day for March. Though there is a ton of switchbacks, you get up pretty quick.

Hiked up with dad in the fog. A few views broke out, but nothing spectacular. Also ventured over to Mt. Pickens(supposedly marked by the "Rover Club") in a hail storm! All-in-all a great day..

Hiked up Mount Lukens from Wildwood via Stone Canyon Trail. Beautifully cool temperatures on a May morning. Part of a training regimen for a week-long backpacking trip in the Eastern Sierra in a few months. Great but relentless uphill battle.

BLTStoned Sister Elsie  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2001


Have hiked Stone Cyn twice and the overgrown, tick-infested Sister Elsie Trail (from Haines Cyn) a couple times.

When I was 19 I ignorantly climbed straight up the mountain from the end of Dunsmore in La Crescenta. I was unable to descend until I got up to the Haines fire road. I was so relieved to find a way down that I didn't bother going the last few hundred feet to the top.
