Absolutely loved this trail. Rated as moderate due to overgrowth, mini creek crossing, and rocks for the first 3 mi or so.
I only came across 3 people on bikes, other than that had the rest of the trail to myself and the animals around.
If you are looking for a trail with scenery change, a little overgrowth, don't mind getting a little muddy, and just want seclusion, then this trail is a great oasis.
Highly recommended.
Wear good shoes!

Nice hike, but pretty much uphill all the way. Was a great day for this, so I can't complain too much. Good excersise.

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

A fun and relatively easy hike. You start in North Ranch and end in a vista and loop around. It gets really hot, so start early in the morning. While a nice hike, I like others in the area more for some reason (Wildwood/Sycamore Cyn/Lang Ranch Simi are).

No shade and we did see a rattlesnake but overall great hike! We went around 7:30 am on a Saturday and were the only ones there. Will definitely be back.

love this little trail! peaceful, not too crowded, but civilization not too far off if you're inexperienced. beautiful animals and foliage. lots of bees and red ants though.

I would say the elevation and difficulty of the cave navigation would make this a moderate-hard trail however I went mid-day and it was quite hot when not in the shade. I'd suggest going with another human as well!

Fantastic Trail! Went counter-clockwise...beginning is all uphill to Castle Peak. This initial ascent requires some scrambling over rocks and is a decent challenge. The rock formation at Castle Peak is really cool and the view is awesome-360 of the SF valley. The trail levels out from Castle Peak to Muntis Cave. The descent to Muntis Cave is no joke and the trail becomes difficult to find! The descent requires repelling down steep rock faces while holding onto a metal cable. It’ll be a struggle if you are not athletic. Muntis Cave is a solid payoff-I went at night and could hear bats while poking around with a flashlight. Overall this is a great trail, but not good for beginners, especially considering the somewhat technical descent to the Cave.

Cool place. Some nice spurs to explore

This was a fantastic hike with great views. I hike up this trail and come down the Las Llajas trail, which makes a roughly 9.5 mile loop. Great for a good calorie burn. Bring water.

It’s very nice once you get to the top. Definitely do it in the morning because it gets hot going up

nice area. you can ride your bike, run if you like to run some trails like i do or just hike. there's not much shade so the sun will be a factor..

I love it is really close to my house

This trail is just pure awesome and action packed. After trekking all around the hills admiring the beautiful landscapes and purple sage flowers we finally started our upward ascent towards the cave! It's a LEGIT cave that you can actually climb up through (no need to have rock climbing experience - just need to grab and scramble a bit). I felt like I was in some secret batman cave a bit and and there was actually a bat or two that flew out the cave. My friend and I climbed up through the cave at a pretty decent high and find a nice area to relax and chill out before our descent back to the bottom.

Pro Tip - After you leave the cave I would highly recommend taking the fire road back to the Victory Trailhead parking lot. This reminds me, when arriving at the trailhead make sure to have $3 cash so can pay for your parking spot.

UPDATE (2/20/18) : I just re-did this hike again with a close group of friends and extended it to Castle Peak! This is a must if you really want to make this a fully adventurous trail. After you explore the cave, you must climb out of the cave and go all the way to the top of the ridge. This portion is steep and also a good uphill workout that is doable. Once you reach the top, you will see in the distance two rocky peaks. The second one in the distance is Castle Peak. This trek is more isolated and rugged so make sure to watch your step. You will do some fun rock scrambling and will get incredible 360 views. Once at Castle Peak, there is a pathway down that will lead back to the trail. Take the pathway back in the direction of the caves and you will hit the parking lot trailhead.

Up the China Flat Trail. Back down the Suicide Trail. Fun hike. Great views. The app map was helpful as there a lot of little trails at the top. As long as you have the hike locked in before you start, even with no cell coverage, map keeps working with GPS. Very little shade. Take plenty of water. Not a good midday summer hike. Was nice in the morning.

Fun basic trail that is great for beginners. There are sections with rock obstacles which are tunneled within trees. Great views too. Recommend bringing more than 24oz of water/sport drink during the heat. Popular trail for the horse riding Agoura neighborhood.

Great trail and the incline to the top is a great work out and challenge. Lots of hawks circling overhead. Hills are still green and beautiful. I went up another 1.5 miles on the Rocky Peak trail. Just an awesome hike and workout.

Great trail and the incline is great leg work out.

First time hiking or doing anything physical in a really long time. Entered the trail at Larwin close to Chatsworth Park South. Followed the paved path till it ended and continued on the unpaved trail beyond it ... I wandered on a different trail by accident and found myself in a much rougher and steeper hike.... turned right instead of left after coming to a fork beyond the end of the paved path... There was still a trail but it was significantly tougher toward the top close to Lilac... Was worth it though and was proud of myself when I finally got to the sign. Now that I know where I turned wrong the next time should be much smoother! And btw... It’s still spring so watch that poison oak!

Rattlesnakes are out in full force now. My son had a baby one cross the trail right in front of his bike

Great Hike! Little of everything!

Don’t bother. Once you arrive, you have to make a small hike uphill to get to the trailhead. Everything is well marked, except there is no mention of this trail. Also, once you get half mile in, there are no dog signs posted. Such a waste of my day.

I liked this trail .. but I like all trails. The way to get there is kinda tricky once you turn on old canyon road you go thru this narrow but windy road that leads to the dirt road wich you have to go thru. Then you pay 5 dollars wich you put in a envelope and put in box rip top part of envelope that is the permit and proof of payment. Trail is quiet and beautiful. Only thing I did not like it is not properly signed meaning there is no sign on the trail to let you know where you are and other trails along the way. Overall great work out . Ooh nd lots of ants

Very nice trail with the Canyons at the end. It took us 1:55min to finish it.

China Flat semi loop w/Semi Peak. 6.1 mi total. Started 1400 King James Court and went up China Flat trail, then to Simi Peak trail. On the way back we to took Suicide Trail back to China Flat. It was a sunny but really nice day. Not too warm and every once in a while got just a tad chilly. But really it was perfect. This would be really tough on a hot day, there is just a couple of small spots with shade. Beautiful views.We were able to see mountain tops with snow (one of which should be Mt. Baldy but i can't tell) and also channel islands.

This is a wonderful hike! Total hidden gem! Pretty easy peasy, and the property owners gave us no trouble at all. Quite friendly!
