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.
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 as Sunland Blvd. merges into Foothill Blvd. (this merger occurs 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 where you will see a Jack-in-the-Box and 7-11 both on the left side of Foothill Blvd. When you turn left on on Oro Vista the Jack-in-the-Box will be on your left corner and the 7-11 will be on the right corner.
Follow Oro Vista until it ends at the desert wash at which point you will turn right. When you turn right Oro Vista end and becomes Big Tujunga Canyon Road.
Follow the road up the mountain towards Mount Wilson. On your right you will Pass the Little League baseball fields. Immediately after you pass the entrance to the ballpark, prepare to turn right. Our entrance is marked by a large swinging bar blocking the road and our Club sign (check out the picture of the sign above) a short distance past the baseball fields.
You will need a key to pass thru the gate. We keep the gates locked to discourage people from stumbling onto a site where arrows may whiz by. After you pass thru the locked gate you will turn right and follow the dirt road which turns left just before the baseball fields. Pass thru the second gate (you will need a key) and the range is straight ahead behind a large berm. Follow the dirt road which turns right and then turns left. When you see Sasquatch greeting you, you have arrived and will find plenty of parking.
We have provided here both an active map and a fixed map with red arrows (see below). Click on this link to access an active Google Map to our location:
ACCESS REQUIRES KEY
Access to the VHA Range requires a key when there is no scheduled shoot or other club activity. The gates remain shut and locked to 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 and the restrooms. 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 or you may forfeit your membership privileges.
