The fire road is blocked just below Three Trees; use switchbacks to the right.

Description

Starting in the suburbs, you climb through grassland to the rounded peak of Mission Point, with 270-degree views of the city and nearby hills. The trail is straightforward fire road except for a short segment that has been blocked off for security of the adjacent gas field; there is a singletrack with switchbacks to the right that replaces it. There is little shade, so this is best as a winter, spring, or night run. It makes an excellent night run, especially under a full moon. Most will run this to Mission Point, but the trail continues onto the junction with Sunshine Canyon Motorway.

Flora & Fauna

Grass, some kind of squash/gourd, oaks, mustard, sunflowers, rabbits, and lizards can all be found here.

Concrete pond just off the trail. They're very hard to see here, and hard to see in person, but there are fish.
