A hiker's haven, Deukmejian Wilderness Park is 709 acres nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. The dirt trails are rugged and the elevations range from approximately 2,159 feet at the entryway to 4,775 feet at the northeast corner of the park. Views of the Crescenta Valley and Los Angeles basin can be admired from almost any point on the park trails. The Deukmejian Wilderness Trail is also home to the historic Le Mesnager Barn, which was constructed between 1914 and 1918 by Louise Le Mesnager. It has been used as a stable, a storage facility for winemaking, and as a home for the Le Mesnager family before it was sold to a property developer in 1968. The City of Glendale purchased Le Mesnager Barn and the surrounding property in 1988 and named it Deukmejian Wilderness Park, after former California governor George Deukmejian.
