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.

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.

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 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.

Not easy ! Tons of trails bomb views No trees :( easy off the 118

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.

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.

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.
