Living in The City of Santa Clarita many tend to take on a mainstream mindset.
People often believe that there is not really much to do here.
They see Magic Mountain and maybe the mall and figure they have seen it all.
Mentryville is located within the vicinity of Newhall at the end of Pico Canyon Road.
Long before the Santa Clarita Valley became officially incorporated into a city, the area resembled the old west.
Mentryville was California ‘s first successful commercial oil boomtown.
These days Mentryville is a California state park that you can travel to and explore, but with some limits.
Time and and dilapidation have led to a few of Mentryville’s historical structures being blocked off with caution tape.
Folks wonder when and if the area will be restored to its original shine, but its still worth the trip.
