Ascent Trip ReportWith a heat wave heating SoCal this weekend, I sought out the coolest area in striking distance that I could find: Palmdale. I started with Liebre, a bit further east, then drove (a bit more than I had anticipated) toward Palmdale to get Mount McDill.
Liebre was a lovely hike. Plenty of green, plenty of shade, nice views of poppies blooming in Antelope Valley. I only saw one other hiker (and one deer).
The short dirt road to the trailhead is a bit gnarly, but my Honda Accord made it just fine. Alternatively, one could drive just a teeny bit farther east on N2 (Pine Canyon Road. Where the road makes a sharp turn, there's a nice wide shoulder to park on. This would only add a few more minutes of hiking time, for the short walk back to the trailhead.
