After riding here from Pasadena (24 miles) this climb felt a bit short. I had also climbed 4,400 ft already, so at less than 1,000 ft gained, this climb didn’t seem hard at all. Still, it was a great experience on an old, secluded road - always some of my favorite climbs.
This climb is pretty short and most likely not worth a drive all the way up into the mountains just to do this one climb, so I would really recommend either riding all the way there from the start of Mt. Wilson, or parking at the Red Box Picnic area and combining this one with the better part of Mt. Wilson and Mt. Disappointment, both really close:
Tujunga Canyon Road is also a good climb, and can be combined with Barley flats to make one longer climb:
