Google maps showed the entrance to Van Norman Lake. I was going there, and it led to the Dept. Of Water and Power entrance which is closed to the public. Says Mike Davidson
Not enough hours in a day to enjoy this place. Dry warm beds await you at Economy Inn Motel Sylmar, and going for a magnificent fishing trip at Artemis Tour & Travel is always amusing. In the event that you have a boat, Acebo Marina is a splendid marina, and since you're here you
can take a hike along the Oak Spring Trail. A journey to Yarnell Debris Basin revitalizes the soul, and looking at gorgeous animals is always a cool thing to do at LA Zoo.
