Vasquez Rocks

November 4, 2012

Come orienteer at our most popular venue!

LAOC has prepared exciting point-to-point navigation courses taking full advantage of the awesome Vasquez terrain at seven different levels of challenge. The technically easiest White and Yellow courses will involve somewhat more climb than in the past in order access some amazing rock areas, so bring those sturdy comfortable shoes. The intermediate Orange course will stretch competitors legs off-trail, with prominent catching features. The advanced Brown, Green, Red, and mighty Blue courses will explore the less-explored southern reaches of the map, while remaining chock full of technical rocky goodness there and back again. Long views, curious formations, and watercourses abound for all, with consequential routes choices to challenge advanced orienteers.

We hope you'll join us at this gem of a County Park!

Take the Interstate 5 north through LA to the north end of the San Fernando Valley. Most LA freeways converge onto the I-5 at this point (210, 405, 170, 118). Just a few miles north of the convergence, head East on Highway 14 (the Antelope fwy) and drive about fifteen miles, then exit at Agua Dulce Road. Go north a couple of miles. Follow the road as it turns right, continue past a stop sign* for 1/4 mile. Park entrance is on the right. Continue through park on the dirt road to the large parking area. Parking is FREE. (*turn at the stop sign for stores and restaurants)
