Rim of the Valley Trail

For the experienced hiker and mountain bicyclist. (Equestrians not permitted). This trail links Glendale with the Rim of the Valley Trail system at Haynes Canyon Road. Starting with gentle grades and becoming very steep in several locations, the trail becomes more difficult as you travel north. The trail passes through the picturesque Cooks Canyon Stream bed for several hundred feet with its year round running water and lush native plants. As you ascend Cooks Canyon you cross four narrow foot bridges spanning deep ravines. This trail features the most spectacular views of the San Fernando Valley.
