In the dry South Fork River (wash) off of Railroad Ave. in Santa Clarita.
- Boppy5 and I intend to get to this Los Angeles hash point at 4:00pm on Monday. I am not sure what the parking availability is nearby on Railroad Avenue, so there may be a delay related to that. Bravissimo594 (talk)
Boppy5 was not feeling well, so I headed out from Pasadena at about 4:30pm en route to Santa Clarita. Parking is not allowed along Railroad Avenue adjacent to the hashpoint, so I continued to drive north to find a cut-across to the west side of the dry river hosting the point. I parked at the dead end of a residential road, hopped over a wall, walked under high-voltage transmission lines, and found a ramp down into the riverbed. It turns out that there is a trailhead just one block south of the street I parked on, so I could have saved a wall-jumping if I had parked over there.
Down in the dry riverbed, the sandy gravel made the trip a little harder than walking on pavement, but there were no significant obstacles to reaching the hashpoint. I took a couple of photos, leaving room for where Boppy5 would have stood, and then returned home.
