At the terminus of the Ultimate Destination Trail sits a small plateau with a 360 degree vista of the San Gabriel Mountains, the surrounding Cherry Canyon area, and the La Cañada Flintridge community. Because of its natural beauty and because of its popularity as a resting place for trail users, it has been dubbed the "Ultimate Destination Point." For many years the La Cañada Flintridge Trails Council, especially Ms. Liz Blackwelder one of its longest standing members, has envisioned a rest area project for the Ultimate Destination Point to include a drinking fountain, water bubbler for horses, and the planting of oak trees for shade. On March 14, 2013, this vision officially became a reality when the City broke ground to commence construction. For pictures of the ground breaking ceremony, click here.
The Ultimate Destination Point project was made possible with support from numerous public and nonprofit agencies, including: the County of Los Angeles Regional Parks and Open Space District, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, Southern California Edison, the La Cañada Flintridge Trails Council, the City, as well as various trail advocates. The project is expected to be completed in June 2013.
