About our Club
Verdugo Hills Archers Club [VHA] is a Four Star NFAA Archery Range nestled between the hills of Sunland-Tujunga. Members are all toxophilites (lovers of the ancient art of archery). Deers frequently wander our range and no poaching is permitted. Our Club members use both traditional and compound bows. Crossbows are not permitted. Broadheads are forbidden except in one limited area we call the Broadhead Pit.
There are multiple courses, including a large practice target area with 10 targets and a 3D range with 28 Targets (field/hunter/3D animals), picnic and restroom facilities, and ample parking.
The range is open to our membership 7 days a week, but access requires a gate key.
It is also MANDATORY that members display their membership ID at all times!
We do not rent or loan equipment. We do provide equipment for lessons, but currently instruction is not available.
No Crossbows are allowed on the range. Broadheads are strictly prohibited except in a very limited area.
Verdugo Hills Archers is non-profit Archery Club. No one gets paid for their time. Volunteers agree to help maintain the range and keep it safe in exchange for a future dues reductions.
At this time we are no longer offering beginning Archery classes to Boy/Girl Scouts, school groups, etc. If you are interested in lessons/classes please visit the Lessons page for updates as to the status of their availability. If the instruction status changes, typically lessons will occur on Saturday mornings by arrangement only.
LOCATION & DIRECTIONS
When traveling South on the 210 Freeway, exit at Sunland Blvd. and turn left (head towards Pasadena) passing Ralph’s Market on your left. Stay on that street (Sunland merges into Foothill Blvd. at the park on your left which is just past the Ralph’s Market mall). Stay in the left lane and proceed to Oro Vista and turn left (there is a 7-11 on the right corner and a Jack-in-the-Box on the left corner). Follow Oro Vista until it ends at the desert wash at which point you will turn right. When you turn right Oro Vista becomes Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Follow the road up the mountain towards Mount Wilson. Pass the Little League baseball fields on your right and, immediately after you pass the entrance to the ballpark, prepare to turn right. Our entrance is marked by our Club sign (check out the picture of the sign above) a short distance past the baseball fields. Pass thru the gate, turn right and follow the dirt road which turns left just before the baseball fields. Pass thru the second gate and the range is straight ahead behind a large berm. Follow the dirt road which turns right and then turns left. You have arrived and will find plenty of parking.
We have provided here both an active map, through a link you can click on, and a fixed map with red arrows (see below):

ACCESS REQUIRES KEY
Access to the VHA Range requires a key when there is no scheduled shoot or other club activity. This helps dissuade non-members from parking, off-roading, hiking and wandering the range when arrows are whizzing by. When you become a member, you will receive a key that will unlock the two gates. If you’ve made arrangements for Archery Lessons the gate should be unlocked and open for your arrival.
Your entry key is for opening the locks to the range and to the restrooms. You are responsible for locking both gates behind you when entering and exiting the range. Also, please lock the restrooms after use! Please do not give your key to anyone else.
