Went around noon, wish I had gone earlier, mostly no shade, that was over 100°. There are some trees here and there that serve as rest stops if needed. Went a little off the suggested trail and found some honey bee boxes. Overall liked the trail, but as the weather gets warmer, it’s best to start this hike early.

Trail was overgrown and poorly maintained, ran into a bee farm with swarms of bees along the trail. Otherwise, it had great views of the Mountain View’s and picturesque settings. Watch out for the rattlers, ran across 3 different small ratters and several other snakes. Also the tar pits had some seeping into the trail.

RATTLE SNAKES EVERYWHERE, don’t bring your dogs or kids here. Trail is overgrown on the loop and bees galore. Waterfall was not to be seen, and quite a few bikers. I personally only found one good view and it was toward the end of the loop or the beginning-ish spot if you got left at the fork in the trail. Definitely not returning

Enjoyed the hike, went early morning and didn't encounter any snakes. I was surprised at how many blooms were still out. Definitely will be a go to hike. Easy to moderate and most of the trail is clear, a little narrow on loop.

Yeah it's alright. Nothing to special and there was a sound that gave me the BIG SPOOK

Clean. Gradual incline. Narrow path at times. Gets slightly confusing to find trail (going clockwise at the fork at top of path). Can get muddy and slippery when rains. No waterfall seen. Bees and rattle snakes on trail.

Been hiking a lot of trails the past month and none are as covered in bugs as this. Constant crane flies and clouds of gnats on the trail. As well as spiders and the typical beetle. Wasn’t a nice view anywhere either unfortunately. Only finished this trail quickly so that we could say we did it. Definitely wouldn’t recommend unless you don’t mind constant bugs in your face.

Reacquainted myself with this hidden jem, took the shorter but harder uphill route to the hilltop. Patch of lupins is still there after several years. Beautiful!

Trail has some serious climbs but a good hiking trail with awesome views.

No parking next to trailhead, but I park on a next street. If you go CCW, do not miss right turn. I walked stright and it was quite steep uphill hike

Great simple trail but be warned: when I returned to my car after the hike the car parked behind me had been broken into. The window was smashed and personal items were stolen.

Amazing trial .. we went yesterday (Jan 21) and the trial is all green from rains. Very beautiful and a pleasant hike. No steep and inclines .. we ended up taking a wrong route and made it a 6.8mile loop. Still not tired. Totally enjoyed and recommend you all to go since it rained and turned green

One of my favorite trails in Simi

Great hike. Not very many people. Nice clean trail (no trash or graffiti). Plenty of street parking.

Hi

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.

Nice 4 miles with a loop. Pretty views. Lots of wildflowers and birds. But also a lot of BEES, bikers, and lizards. Went late morning on a Sunday and saw only a handful of other hikers. No parking lot, just a dirt pull out, and No port-o-johns.

There wasn't a waterfall, but if you like lizards, this is the trail for you!

Beautiful views! Was insanely windy when I went which made it slightly more adventurous. But very easy hike, not too many inclines.

As someone else said, I ended up missing the loop and going towards a housing area a couple of miles down. Since It had rained I came upon a gnarly mud pit that almost took me out

Nice afternoon hike. Not many hikers and a couple of bikers. Trail is in decent condition but not as overgrown on the loop as I was expecting. No wildlife seen other than birds.
