The Moon is a peak on the hills surrounding Acton Conservation Camp #11, between Nelson and Maher Canyons. It is a peak often hiked to by the staff of the Los Angeles County Fire (LACO) Department and California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation and as well as the inmates residing there as a means of exercise. At the summit there is a rusted 20 plus year old sign with the words "The Moon" and a well marked small grave site/memorial for a dog that used to be part of the staff.
