Saddletree Ranch Trailhead
13877 Glenoaks Blvd., Sylmar
Accessed from the City of Los Angeles’ Stetson Ranch Park in Sylmar, the Saddletree Ranch Trailhead provides shady picnic grounds, an interpretive display, and views into the San Fernando Valley and Angeles National Forest. Popular with equestrians and hikers, Saddletree Ranch Trail connects Conservancy-owned Wilson Canyon Park to a City of Los Angeles-maintained trail at Cascades Golf Course.
The trail is part of the interregional Marge Feinberg Rim of the Valley Trail. Feinberg’s tireless volunteer efforts led to legislation that designated the Rim of the Valley Trail Corridor in the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy Zone. The Corridor was created to form an interlinking system of parks, trails, open space, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities within and between the Santa Monica, Santa Susana and San Gabriel Mountains.
The Rim of the Valley Trail Corridor lays out the blueprint for a system of natural lands that shelters wildlife and extends recreational opportunities throughout a large urban area. The backbone of that system—and the thread which will one day tie it together, is the Marge Feinberg Rim of the Valley Trail.
