Directions: Take I-5 to I-14 towards Palmdale. Exit Crown Valley Road in Acton. At the bottom of the offramp, turn right on Crown Valley. Go down to the school. Turn Right at Syracuse. Syracuse becomes Escondido. Go up Escondido, turn Left at Hubbard. (Hubbard is a dirt road.) Take Hubbard down a winding road to Hughes Canyon and turn Left. Note white fenced horse corral on the right at Hughes crossroads. Take Hughes Canyon road approx 0.2 mile to the crest of the hill and turn left on the first dirt road that you come to. Take that road all the way to the top of the hill. You will come to a Saddle where you can fly off either side of the hill. Parking is limited so carpooling is strongly suggested. The road is rough so pick the vehicle with lots of ground clearance.
