Directions  From the 118 Freeway take the Balboa exit north. Make a left (west) on Rinaldi Street. Park on the street just after crossing Zelzah Avenue, where you see a street sign for "Hesperia" on your right leading to a dirt-road dead end and broken-down white fence.

Where  Granada Hills - Off of Rinaldi, just west of Zelzah.

Notes  "A variegated loop through the hidden wilds and wild suburbia of the north valley, including Aliso and Limekiln Canyons" -- Rob Campbell, Ecstatic Trails

A note for the hikers -- You'll be entering from the small pedestrian trail that meets Rinaldi, make sure you head right at the main fork over the stream. That'll take you through the whole canyon.
