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.

Hiked Stagecoach trail from back of Corriganville in Simi Valley to Chatsworth. It was a nice moderate hike, not too strenuous, but watch out for poison oak at top of section between Corriganville and Santa Susana Pass road! Once you get into Chatsworth the different trails are marked well.

Starts off on asphalt road. Take the quary trail and it will meet up with the Santa Susanna trail. Nice view at the top. Along the road you can actually see holes where they planned to put dynamite. There is also a sign commemorating the road dated in 1930. About 3 mile round trip.

I loved this trail has lot of rocks and scenic beauty

This is a walk/hike on a largely newly paved truck road. The parking lot at the start indicates you need to pay to park. It is completely exposed with open golden grassland and few trees. There are numerous empty derelict lots scattered along the way, some of which were old missile bases. Towards the top is an open gate with a no trespassing sign, but a ranger said it was alright to proceed. At the top I spoke to some hunters that said you should ideally get permission to be on the land. The views of the mountains and valley are beautiful. On my way up I was passed by a train of cars going up to film a commercial. On the way down I was passed by several information technology trucks going up to I guess do maintenance/repairs at the radio and microwave towers at the top. All in all it was an easy walk but which gave a good cardio workout going up.
