Area residents, like Bill Friday of Tujunga, took a tour of Deukmejian Wilderness Park, the first time since the recent Station Fire, in Glendale on Saturday October 10, 2009. Friday has visited and hiked the park with his wife more than 300 times. Residents learned what the city is doing to curtail mud flows in the coming rainy season. (Raul Roa/News-Press)


Glendale city officials are currently accepting sign-ups for a guided tour of Deukmejian Wilderness Park, which remains closed to the public after the Station fire scorched much of the land.

During the tours, scheduled for Nov. 21 and 22, hikers can learn about the surviving native plants and animals, and get updates on park recovery efforts. The city sponsored a similar tour last month.
