Beginning at the top of Walnut Avenue, near the Nature Center, the fire road leads to the Verdugo Mountainway Trail.  The Verdugo Mountainway is an extensive trail system which extends from the Sun Valley area, south to Brand Park in Glendale, and northeast to Tujunga and LaCrescenta.  Hiking and mountain biking are permitted on the fire roads.  The smaller trails are for hiking only, and along with the fire roads, lead to spectacular views of the San Fernando Valley.
