Socal - Los Angeles County - Tujunga NickNames: #Graveyard
Take Foothill Blvd. to Haines Cyn.and go North. When you get to Day St. make a right and then an immediate left "this is where Haines Cyn. continues." Go to the top of the street, park where you can. "All residential area" but it's o.k. Go through the gate and follow the dirt road up and to the right. You should see a small pond to your right. Thomas Guide page 504-B3

- Trail UpdateBig Tujunga Access Point-To access this trail from Big Tujunga Road, drive
0.4 miles past the little league fields and look for a
dirt driveway. The right fork is gated, but the left fork
is the start of the fire road (and someone's
driveway; park somewhere else).
There is also some sandy singletrack between the
start of the road and the little league fields.
Ride rating: Novice
Ride distance: 3.3 miles Elevation change:

- Trail UpdateBeeC-There is some construction at the "pond" site and it is now a big ditch filled with mud and sand. There is no more gate at the end of the Haines Cyn road but instead a sign that reads "No motor vehicles of any kind beyond this point". Like what the description above says, its okay to park outside and ride about 0.4miles up the hill to where the trail head begins.
Once beyond the metal gate that starts at the fire road, the trail is very rocky and loose. You will soon arrive at a junction where basically you get 2 choices. Go straight up the rocky difficult path or turn left and go up the gentily inclined well maintained fire road.
The path straight up is steep and difficult due to the conditions of the fire road. Be prepared to do some trick maneuvering to go around the rocks because the conbination of steep incline and loose gravel can make climbing difficult.
If you go to the left up the gentle hill, you'll be pleased to find a wide and well maintained fire road. There are some muddy spots with water flowing down the hill side that adds to the thrill of MTB.
Like Matt pointed out below, it goes all the way down and is a blast to ride downhill. Climbing back isn't that hard except for maybe 2-3 areas where it is steep for beginner or those who are physically challenged (me!).
Very few riders on this trail so it's all yours!

- Trail UpdateAbout half a mile to the summit and then an easy downhill. 1 1/2 miles down you will see you are just above a baseball diamond. Look for a "hidden left" and take it. As you go down there will quite a few junctions in the trail. They will all lead to the same place. The end is Big Tujunga Cyn. Road at the little leage field.
