Trail Description

Condor Peak Trail is a challenging single track trail. It as a few technical spots but for the most part it's exposure. The trail winds it's way up from Big Tujunga Canyon Rd. to just below the summit of Condor Peak.

Winding in and out of the many ravines, the trail offers views of Mt Luken's north slope, the big Tujunga Resevoir and higher still, the surounding peaks, including Mt Gleason, Strawbery Peak and MT Wilson.

Getting There

There are two trailheads to Condor Peak. Both are located along Big Tujunga Canyon Road. The south trailhead is located just beyond the entrance to Vogel Flats and the east trailhead is about a mile further along Big Tujunga Cyn Rd.

If you are coming from the west, take the 210 frwy to Sunlabd Blvd. Go east(left) on Sunland Bl. Sunland Bl will joing and become Foothill Bl at Sunland Park. Short after passing the park, turn north(left) on Oro Vista Ave. Follow Oro Vista trough a residential neighborhood until it turns east at the Tujunga Wash. Oro Vista will become Big Tujunga Cyn Rd. After turning east at the wash, Vogel Flats will be about 5.5 miles up the canyon.

When to Bike

Condor Peak Trail can usually be ridden at any time of year. It does get snow at times in winter months, but it melts quickly. Summer months can be hot and the black flies pesky to say the least.
