Set on the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Deukmejian Wilderness Park sprawls across an area of 709 acres. Its woodlands make a wonderful haven for tourists, nature lovers and those who seek relaxation. You would also be able to notice a lot of chaparral and sage scrub, as they cover most of the park. While most of this facility boasts of undisturbed pure nature, a part of it is well developed. Aimed to give visitors all the amenities required to make them comfortable, you will find restrooms, picnic shelters and some other facilities here. A lovely barn that dates back to the year 1932 which is still in this park, may interest you.

Deukmejian Wilderness Park Reviews & Ratings
A friend and I visited spontaneously on a rare misty Saturday. Absolutely gorgeous (as was my friend). It felt like Scotland with the fog rolling down the mountain, and now I understand why there's a street called Dunsmore nearby. A great, hilly walk, lots of flora and fauna to see, and a real selling point for Glendale.
Very nice park with a bit of history in it. Although I enjoyed my visit, I did notice some RV's and a junker car in a dirt lot connected to the parks entrance and it seemed a bit vagrancy like. Couple of rag tags approached me asking for a cigarette and I assumed they were the ones living in the RV or Junker car. Over all, nice visit, nice park and beautiful spread. Couple of trail heads to hike up the mountain and check out if you're interested in that. Enjoy!🤘💀🤘
Peaceful, quiet with a wonderful, magnificent view of the Crescenta Valley and beyond to the L.A. skyline. Totally awesome!
Very rocky. Be prepared. Don’t recommend minimalist shoes unless you’ve been training for at least 6 months with them. Left is the loop. Right goes to the summit. Nice little stream at the beginning of the hike to the summit. Well maintained little area.
This park is beautiful and well maintained, mostly from the efforts of a small group of citizen volunteers and city park workers along with the company, Take a Hike. They offer various interpretive nature walks with experts such as herpetologists and geologists. There are campfire programs, and more. On site is a giant historical barn, and vineyard. Trails stretch up and into the Verdugo Mountains, offering spectacular views of the city below. Valleys and streams in winter and spring support wildlife. Keep you eyes open for mule deer.
