Ready to get outside and explore the great outdoors? At Skyline, everyday adventure comes naturally in a place designed for fun-loving outdoor enthusiasts. Skyline is uniquely located atop some of the highest hills in the Santa Clarita Valley, completely surrounded by more than 1,600 acres of natural open space just waiting to be explored. Whether you’re in the mood for a casual stroll after dinner or a more serious trek out in nature, there are great hiking trails waiting for you at Skyline.
To get started on your hike, simply step outside your front door. The Skyline community paseos meander throughout the community for more than two miles, connecting neighborhoods, parks and the future Saugus Union elementary school. Because the community trails were designed with an uninterrupted run, Skyline residents can take the trails from home to school, or one of the many neighborhood parks, and back home without coming into contact with traffic.
On top of great walking trails within the community, Skyline is also close to an abundance of easily accessible public hiking trails. Below are just a few.
Mint Canyon Trail
The Mint Canyon trail, currently being dedicated to LA County by Pardee Homes, is just outside of Skyline. It’s also a fun spot for some STEM learning! Mint Canyon Formation was formed by an ancient lake and delta, leaving behind rich minerals. Hiking the trails, you’ll see the reddish, rocky beds sitting on top of the lighter-hued canyon formations. Geologists theorize the plane once transferred water, based on the rounded cobbles and flat bedding. In fact, the delta that was once here is believed to trace back to the ancestral Santa Clara River. Talk about a land with a rich history!
Golden Valley Ranch
Trekking up one of the most prominent ridgelines in Santa Clarita, hikers will be rewarded with the rolling terrain and sweeping panoramas from the Placerita Trail. Lookout points located throughout Golden Valley Ranch’s 5.7-mile trail system offer inspiring views and places to take a breather. Head south of Placerita Trail to Horse Peak and take in the sights from the highest point in Santa Clarita.
Placerita Canyon Nature Center
Explore a number of trails and attractions at Placerita Canyon Nature Center, including the Oak of the Golden Dream – the site of California’s original gold discovery in 1842. The Heritage Trail covers a short, concrete wheelchair- and stroller-accessible path to check out other educational gems, like the Nature Center Museum exhibit and a mural depicting the history of Placerita Canyon. From the main trailhead, head south to Manzanita Mountain Trail. Challenge yourself on the steep incline and then reap the rewards of a fantastic view.
