So let me create another perennial blog post by noting the popular urban legend about a community of little people in one of the foothill communities in the San Gabriel Valley, or slightly east. Someone claims they were walking in the middle of nowhere and stumbled across a cluster of smaller-than-usual homes with small doors and windows. Apparently there are rumored but nonexistent communities of little people all over the country. Back in my high school days, the kids with cars would go to the hills around Chino and the Aerojet plant to check out the eerie mists. I never heard of anyone actually encountering anything unworldly, but what was discovered were some great make-out spots. Not that I know from personal experience, of course.
I've been there many times since I grew up in LB, but I can't tell you "exactly" where it is since I would always go the wrong way at first. Now, it's confusing in that place and creepy as hell. It is just past the mission directions below , I believe you veer to the left and drive down to where there is a red light and a white bar, like in parking lots. You need to leave your cars there and go on foot past the security bar. It's a loooong road and very, very dark.
