Description

There are multiple veins of granite boulders north of the campground towards the summit of Mt. Akawie.

There are great boulders to the left of the Burkhart Trail about a half a mile in going towards Cooper Canyon Falls.

There is a large, mostly chossy, formation in the campground.

According to some supertopo forums there are some sport routes around, but I've never seen them.

And there are boulders on the other side of the 2 Highway.

Aside from a boulders I heard Lance did on Mt. Waterman, this entire area is undocumented as far as I'm aware. If anyone has any history of the climbing here or names of any notable climbs please chime in.

There are no established trails in this area. If you want to get the most out of this area just walk around and see what you bump into. Burkhart trail has the most density of rock and the most potential.

I think there's lots of poison oak near the creek (at least as of fall of 2019).

There are many options to park your car. If you are doing Burkhart Trail I would recomend pulling in to the campground and following signs to the trailhead. There is parking but I think you need an Adventure Pass. Alternatively you could pay for a campground, $12 a night. There is also a Buckhorn Day Use Parking Area off the 2 Highway (also Adventure Pass), but hiking in from there is probably only good if you want to climb Mt. Akawie boulders.

Getting There

34.7 miles from Foothill Blvd. in La Canada.
