Description

This historic park, located in Los Angeles County where the Simi Hills meet the Santa Susana Mountains, is rich in natural, historical and cultural significance. Here in the western part of the Transverse Ranges, the land is dominated by high, narrow ridges and deep canyons covered with an abundant variety of plant life. The park offers panoramic views of the rugged natural landscape as a striking contrast to the developed communities nearby. May through November is usually dry. Cold, wet winters can send torrents of water over the bedrock. Rarely, heavy rains can cause flash floods in arid canyons. The park is open daily, 8am to sunset.
