Sylmar's Pioneer Cemetery is another sadly abandoned cemetery, similar to Tujunga's Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery was in operation from the late 1800's until it was abandoned in the 1950's. Only a handful of markers survived years of vandalism. Today, a group of volunteers is attempting to put names to the lost graves - buried bodies that are being located with ground penetrating radar.
One hour guided walking tour - no sandals - bring hats and water.
