Great hike with good elevation. No shade but beautiful scenic route through big rock formations, a couple of caves along the way. This trail intersects with Rocky Peak so you have the option to continue up Rocky Peak for a longer hike with more elevation. Weather was perfect for long hike today. Hiked all the way to “Sea Shell” ridge. This point is another thousand feet of elevation and at one time must have been an ocean floor because you can find sea shells scattered, check out the photo of the rock with embedded shell. Also stunning views along the route; Simi Valley on one side, San Fernando Valley on the other side. This trail also intersects with Chumash trail, will check out next time. Will definitely add to my fav list.

starts off easy if you are going clockwise, but about 3 miles in it gets tough.

Solid hike and a workout! The way out is a steady climb with some substantial inclines. The trail is rock and hardscrabble. Bring a lot of water. There is not much shade. Views of urban sprawl are really good.

Love this trail! The views are some of the most spectacular I have seen, and it doesn’t even take too much effort to see them. It’s awesome being able to see both sides of the mountain. The freeway is quite loud for most of the beginning of the trail but once you get further into the mountain, it’s very peaceful and doesn’t feel like you’re that close to civilization at all. Definitely brings tons of water and sunscreen because there is hardly any shade.

This trail is an incline all the way up until it meets rocky peak trail. It is a challenge but worth it! It will give your legs a work out but the terrain is awesome. It is hard on the knees if you are one that may have knee problems. I would highly recommend this as an early morning hike because there is no shade. Bring plenty of water. While we went in the afternoon it was still a fun but very tiring hike.

Challenging, but very doable. Cool rock outcroppings and views. Really enjoyed it.

It’s hard but the view is so amazing!!!!

Well-kept trail, beautiful views of valleys, cities, and distant mountain ranges. You can even see the ocean and the islands on a clear day!! Be prepared with a LOT of water and for a pretty long and slightly strenuous hike if you're casual hikers like myself and my boyfriend. Leaving earlier in the morning would be better in this SoCal sun. Not too many shadey spots.

Love this hike! Gorgeous views- nice challenge. Lots of little side trails to explore. Take more water than you think you need since there is no shade.

Cool terrain. It gets hot so make sure you have adequate water.

Good steady incline on this trail. The trail does get really narrow once you get about a mile in so we found it more difficult to let people and mountain bikers pass us with our two large dogs. Would probably not take the dogs on this trail again.

I prefer running as much of the trail as possible. Only reason for the 3 stars is this is not a runners trail, too many rocks and shrubs to twist an ankle on. I ran half and walked half and made it from the Chumash up to rocky peak and back in 2 hours so it’s at least a quick outing.

Santa Ana winds nearly blew us off Rocky Peak as we got to the top. In the distance could be seen smoke plumes from the fires that were still being fed by those winds to the west of us. The views never disappoint here but the parking remains a challenge. Pretty brutal in the summer as there is no shade.

Fairly steep climb. Great views if Simi Valley on the way up. At the top where the trail meets the Rocky Peak Trail nice view of San Fernando Valley.

Fun trail to ride. Many technical portions. Great views and well maintained trails.

Parked at Chumash Trailhead, worked our way over to Hummingbird Trailhead, up Hummingbird, left on Rocky Peak fire road, then down Chumash Trail. Moderately difficult, bring water. Great views of Simi Valley, the San Fernando Valley, and Humming Bird Ranch.
