This was an amazing hike. Did it with a few friends on a full moon eve. Entered from the Double Tree Rd access in Oak Park. Our goal was to get to Simi Peak, but we missed that little connector in the dark, so our turn around point was Albertson Fire Rd. The trail is more like a dirt road, wide & clear. It starts in a dry creek area wooded with oak & sycamore. The trail soon climbs up rocky ridges. Near the top of the range the trail opens up into rolling grasslands. Like so many of the trails in the area you don't have to get very far in to feel like you are very far from civilization, and I love that. I will be hiking htis route again in December with the goal to continue all the way to Long Canyon trail and come out in Wood Ranch on SW end of Simi Valley.
