I usually start at the trailhead on Los Amigos and Washburn. When entering the trail, you can go straight (as if you are going straight up to the cross) which is a tougher route. You will be scrambling. Or take the route on the left which will lead you to switchbacks. When you reach the cross, the view of Simi Valley is beautiful on a clear day. You can see the Ronald Reagan Library and Air Force One when looking out west. Have fun!

It was hard to discern the trail when hiking along avocado farm. No shade, so wear a hat and lots of sunblock!

Trail has been mostly repaired from the bulldozer damage and the brush is all cut back.

If you just want to see the cross, it's 1.1mi up one way. Take pix, head back down. If you want to sweat a little, continue following the trail until you hit a pave road with a gate then stop and head back. There's no point going all the way to the end of what's in AllTrails. Kinda weird map. When you see the residential area, just head back. Beautiful views at the top.

Enjoyed great scenery of Simi Valley. It’s worth to come the top white cross if you are in Simi. 30 minutes walk to reach the top.

Went off to the right and went up the steep way which I would not recommend to a beginner like me, kicked my buns but I did it although I didn't have much of a choice. Didn't care for the last part which goes through the "urban" side of the trail, except I got some nice lemons hanging from this huge lemon tree. Lol Great views of Reagan library too and Simi of course. Would do again.

Great trail. Our 2 year old and 7 year old did it - there was some carting of the little one at the end. GREAT views of Simi.

Great view of Simi. You see it all! There is variety so you don't have to take the same path each time. If you are out of shape you will need to stop for breaks, but if you are moderately in shape it is totally doable.
