This COVID-19 pandemic is making us stay close to home and finding all these wonderful hidden gems. We took a short hike less than two miles round trip right before sundown. The views are spectacular in such a short hike. We always love to explore ruins and the Boy Scout house is cool place to check out. The parking lot is open from sunrise to sunset and not 500pm like some might say.

Stough Canyon Nature Center is a great stop for bicyclists for a cool sip of water from the drinking fountains and if the center is open the displays of flora and fauna are a quiet diversion before gaining the crest of the Verdugo Mountain truck trail at 2505 feet above sea level. With the recent SoCal rains the regrowth in the canyon is remarkable. The climb up to the Nature Center is 900 feet from the valley below at an altitude of 1500 feet. The Verdugo crest is another 1100 feet above the Nature Center but there is The Henry Cook Lookout Point for hikers (bicycles are restricted) a few hundred feet above the Nature Center with a wonderful view of the Burbank airport and the San Fernando Valley to the coastal Mountains.

This is my favorite place to hike. It’s a great place to just get out in nature and it’s not crammed with people who just want to be seen like at Runyon Canyon. I can go for 10 minutes without running into someone on these trails and when I do they’re always friendly. The area has recovered nicely from the wildfires and It’s especially beautiful in spring with the flowers in full bloom

The hiking paths are well maintained, safe and accessible. In the evening you can hear the coyotes calling to each other.

The center itself is okay. I didn't spend much time in there. I did however enjoy walking around the grounds. Interesting birds and plants. The hiking trail was steep and since I stumbled across the center by accident I was not prepared to make the hike.

The Nature center has several different activities and events. It's near hiking trails and one can occasionally see interesting wildlife. If you live in Burbank, you must check it out

We spent about a half hour in the actual Nature Center. From there, we went on an amazing hike. Though steep, the view at the top, looking out over Burbank all the way to LA, was pretty amazing. There were more hikes, but we only had time for the one.

I was exploring my new neighborhood when I stumbled up on this nature center. It's very welcoming and family friendly (all ages). Full of information about the area and it's history. There are maps and walking/hiking paths for all levels. It's a bit steep so, I think wheelchairs might have to their work cut out for them. There were off road cyclists having a great time on the trails. When you get to the vista lookout, the view is amazing. You can see the Pacific from Burbank!! It's not too rugged a walk or too long. There are few trails you can take, differing in distance and complexity. The staff at the nature center is very helpful and knowledgeable.
