About the Location:
San Vicente Mountain is a 1,960-foot summit that was used at the start of the cold war as a defense site to protect Los Angeles from Soviet attacks. San Vicente Mountain was one of several summits around Los Angeles used as a Nike missile defense site in the 1950s to detect and intersect Russian missiles and aircraft directed at the city. After a decade, Nike missiles were made obsolete by long-range technology, but the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy has done an excellent job preserving this old site, adding informative panels to keep this history alive.
