"My friend and I spent an awesome Saturday in the Sierra Pelona Mountains of far NW Los Angeles County. We hiked up the dirt road (7N23) from Pine Canyon Road and hiked up to Sawmill Mountain (5,517'), and then took 7N23A and followed it to the top of Burnt Peak. The whole hike was about 13.5 miles, with the ascent up Sawmill Mountain's southeast shoulder and descending its south slope shaving some distance off of the dirt road approach which would otherwise make a 14 mile round trip. The scenery is spectacular not only on the top, but from all angles, and up and down, making for an interest" - brianpowell, Feb 18, 2018
"Matt Kraai led his first Sierra Club hike to two peaks today: Sawtooth and Burnt. Burnt, which we did second, was mostly on fire roads, but we did take the optional use trail that takes you fairly close to the summit, which I recommend. We didn't see the turn-off for that use trail at first, so we made a nice little duck for subsequent hikers." - HikerMark, Jan 4, 2015
"The fourth and final stop of the day. An FAA complex dominates the summit, but a walk around the fence gives you great views of the Mojave all the way out to Gorgonio, the north side of the San Gabriels, and across Los Padres NF." - Christopher, Oct 28, 2012
