Many different trails to go on in this park & you’re bound to love them all. Lots of vegetation and some wildlife. Direct sun so bring hats and water.

Love this hike, it’s really fun for families with little kids bc it’s not too long and waters are fun to splash and swim in. Usually it’s got a nice crowd but plenty of space to spread out. Direct sunlight for most of the hike so bring water and a hat. Go during spring for the wildflowers.

I love this trail!! A friend and I came to this trail looking for the secret cave (we didn’t find it) but were pleasantly surprised with the hike anyway! We did lose the trail on our way up towards the Rocky Peak Trail split, so using the map on here really helped us get back on track. On our way down, it was much easier to follow the purple arrows. when you reach Rocky Peak Trail, if you turn left you’ll loop back to where you parked off of Kuenher Dr. if you go right, you’ll continue on a much longer hike but we hear the views on Rocky Peak Trail are beautiful. We brought our dog but there isn’t really any shade at all, so bring lots of water and wear sunscreen and hats. Great views the whole way up...it gets pretty steep at times. We will definitely be coming back to check out more of Rocky Peak too!

Only 2.5 miles up to the peak if you just want a good view (5mi round trip).

It is a great hike to do with your family! There are so many great picture places, and the scenery is gorgeous. Be carful of snakes.

I love the alder trees here, clean, creek, picnic area, waterfalls, frogs, toads, birds, palm trees, very nice, not so busy

You can have picnics at the first trees, Willow, Pine, Spruce, Alder, Fig, Castor Bean, Cottonwood, and Sycamore

The Trail is a fire road 70% of the canyon, the end takes you up a few hills, dropping down to the best oak forest of the hike, then ending at the Sensoen Street, I saw some tracks going up the meadows past Sensoen Street, I’ll explore it next time, seems to take you up to the waterfall, or something?

The California Tree Frog and the Southern California Black Walnut are very rare, found here, in this Riparian Zone, there were goldfish in the first pond, someone dumped them I guess...

That’s All!!

Went on it today was pretty easy but had a great time and saw such wonderful views

Decent outing with stream still active even into Fall. Moments of solitude but busy trail near housing and major roads. Moderate only due to some elevation changes but small portions of trail are even paved albeit broken down. Overall a nice nature outing for the area.

What a great hike that has all kinds of layers and adventures to it. I did the lower east loop that goes through a bunch of epic rock formations (great for rocking climbers), the former set of hit TV show M.A.S.H, and ends with the rock pool where people gather to swim and jump off mini cliffs in the wilderness. I could only imagine how this park looks when there is actually water in the Malibu creek, it was all dried up pretty much when I went except for the rock pool area.

Most of the trail is wide and flat for the most part making it very doable yet still a great workout since it's about 6-7 miles long (roundtrip).

Looks like there was a firestorm through here. All of the trees and shrubbery are dead.

Asked a fellow hiker about this and they said that it becomes green in the Winter. Going to come back then.

I little disappointed it was overgrown. But the biggest disappointment was all the new construction for housing development.

Enjoyed great scenery of Simi Valley. It’s worth to come the top white cross if you are in Simi. 30 minutes walk to reach the top.

Love this hike. Can be super packed on the weekends so come during the week during the middle of the day. Beautiful little oasis at the bottom of the falls. Don't walk across the reeds and cattails just let nature be and respect it from a distance :)

Great with lots of elevation. Most of the elevation is in the beginning half mile and the last half mile near the summit.

Love this trail. Hiking poles helped greatly with the ascent and descent.

Nice start with good views and pretty scenery, but the detour is overgrown and more difficult than the rest of the trail.

Definitely challenging specially after you’ve done several other hikes and get lost (it happens to me a lot) but it was s good challenge and I totally teared up when I saw my vehicle LOL

I will consider this hike as moderate. You go as far as you want we only hike 2 miles we have our 4 month baby so it was a little harder. The view is just amazing.

nice step start but broaches off to different trails. not to hard to be honest but down hill was a blast, pretty fair terrain

Fantastic view over LA.

just loved it! was perfect for walk and jog and sights were wonderful to see!

Nice hike. We got there around 0915 and parking was tight, this was a fall morning. Trail is exposed, so bring a hat and make sure to wear sunscreen. Did the Paradise Falls trail with an added leg bypassing the water treatment plant down the valley. Neat to see a water fall in the LA area this time of year, and the hike along the creek was also pleasant. Lots of families, which is always nice to see. Also passed a couple mountain bikers. Plenty of options to extend your hike, and some great views throughout the hike.

this trail was a blast. plenty of easy, moderate and hard portions. couple of benches to chill at and soak in the view.

plenty of things to do on the bike. has it all

This trail is ok, but not worth going out of your way for. Very dry and dusty. A few good views but throughout a lot of the trail you can still see neighborhoods. I went around sunset and ran into a large rattlesnake right near the trail! The waterfall was little and serene but very busy with other people. Probably a trail best for families.

A very wide an open trail easy to find from the exit of the freeway. Sandy and rocky the whole way the trail winds and twists as it ascends through the mountains. The sounds of the highway eventually dropping away to pleasant silence. There is an interesting sandstone cave open on two ends early on the trail.
The landscape looks to be filled with scrub brush, boulders, and plenty of side trails branching off in all directions for those that want to explore features in the distance. Please exercise caution if you choose to do this. The main trail is easy to follow and is about as wide as a small street.
Not too hard but certainly a good workout the trail is fairly moderate with some steep sections and an extended steep section as the last push before the summit.
Well worth the trip with good views of Simi Valley, and the San Fernando Valley.
The trail seemed well traveled on the day I did it but was not so crowded that one could not enjoy peaceful solitude.
Will certainly tackle this trail again.
