If you drive a bit further up Lake Hughes Road, bypassing the obvious public parking spot for Castaic Lake views and hikes, you can find spots along the road that would lead you to believe you are farther away from the masses than you actually are. This is one of those spots. And I’ve never seen another person stop here for the view. To the left is the small community of Castaic and then the city of Santa Clarita, but to the right, there is a whole lot of nothing.
