Welcome to Haskell Canyon, a 526 acre canyon with steep hillsides, spacious grassland meadows, and stands of oak trees throughout. Haskell Canyon is situated on the north side of town, along the edge of the Angeles National Forest. The Haskell Canyon family homesteaded this canyon for their cattle ranch in the early 1900’s. Later, the Agajanian family raised hogs here until the 1950’s. A San Diego developer had plans to turn this canyon and surrounding hillsides into over 500 homes a few years ago, but resistance from the neighbors provided the City of Santa Clarita an opportunity to acquire the property for open space. Plans to develop trails and picnic areas is underway. Look for upcoming information.
Haskell Canyon is located north of Copperhill Drive, east of Haskell Canyon Road. Parking is available east of High Ridge Drive along the roadway. Parking is also available on Ranchview Terrace, off of High Ridge Drive, along the street curb. Signs are posted at the trailhead.
