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

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

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

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.

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

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.

Its a brutal climb to the top with a mountain bike. But well worth it for the view and long descent. The down hill portion is fun, and a little chunky in some parts. But nothing too difficult. Not recommended for beginners though.

The rocky topography (boulders all around) distinguishes this trail from others in the L.A. area. Definitely a good workout-steady uphill climb to the peak (more intense toward the end). View from the peak is great, and the wind at the top offers a nice respite from the Simi Valley heat. You can also sign a trail log at the peak. Dogs will be fine for most of the hike, but will struggle with the final approach.

Great moderate workout on paved road above Chatsworth. Partly scenery of the city below.

Intense at the start going up Hummingbird trail but a good long loop. It’s mostly all exposed so start early.

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.

What a great hike. Started early to avoid heat. Great views and well maintained trails. Thumbs Up

This is a good moderate steady uphill climb with great views of Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley. Just note that when you get to the first fork, head left rather than right to continue up the trail. I had veered right and there are a few scrambly climbs and a viewpoint and beautiful plateau like area with wildflowers, but to continue the trail, go left.

There were a surprising number of people on the trail for a weekday evening and everyone was quite friendly and seemed like experienced because no one seemed taxed.

I started the hike in the evening around 6.20 and wanted to get back before dark so I did not make it all the way to the top, so I definitely am coming back. Surprisingly, other people were starting up the trail around 7.40 so I would love to hear what their experience was like starting the climb an hour before dark!

Nice trail for 80+ degree weather! Shaded and very scenic. Only went 2.5 miles given timeframe after work and daylight. Definitely want to go back!

Hiked all the way to the Chumash trail and back. It turned out to be 8 miles for me. Great views once it cleared up. Got there at 5:30am on a Saturday and there was quite a few cars parked already. There more parking across the bridge.

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.

on Las Llajas Trail

Nice 9 mile loop. I started on Las Llajas and ended with the Chumash Trail. Las Llajas is a smooth fire road while Chumash is a technical single track so plenty of variety plus great views.

This hike is amazing. The views go on as far as the eye can see. I felt like the further back on the trail I went the more beautiful the scenery was. Well worth the climb!

Beautiful views with wildflowers in spring. The trail transitions aren’t intuitive - I wouldn’t have figured out the transition from the Chumash trail to the Hummingbird trail without a map.

Awesome views! A favorite trail among mountain bike riders. Bring lots of water. Few parking spots. Please pick up after your 4-legged friends.

I love this trail, so beautiful when the mountains are green, and I love that it has views of both city and nature.

I went on this hike to find the steam shovel. I asked a lot of people and no one knew what I was talking about when I would stop them to ask for directions, but thanks to a group of people that I ran into. They knew exactly where it was at and told me how to get there. From the beginning you hike 2.7 miles. So about 700 feet after you cross the creek for the 3rd time. Right at 2.7 you will see a small trail that is 12 inches wide on the left. Take that up for 1.8 and make sure to take water because that 1.8 is all incline, but it is not too bad. A kid can do it and so can a dog or you can even mountain bike it.
