Great hike with wonderful views along the way with the biggest payoff at the end of the trail, finishing at the top of the hill proudly topped with the American Flag! We went on a Thursday late morning in November and came across only 3 other hikers. The climb up isn’t too steep, but is relentless in the climb to the first peak. Then you head down to the China Flat trail where is gets very quite and lots of rustling in the fields and trees which kept us on our toes. We did come across a 1 1/2 foot rattle snake lounging across the trail. Luckily I had a long stick with me to push him along, as he had no interest in moving from his warm spot. For a lit guy, he got very aggressive when I moved the dirt by him, but after a loud hissss, he slithered off into the brush. Love the different path types, from gravel to soft dirt to boulders to stones.

HikingGreat!No shadeRocky

I like this hike. It is rocky and steep at some section, nothing too hard to handle. The trail forks out at China flat, this could be confusing. You also share the trail with mountain bikers, I saw more bikers than hikers. The view is very good at the top

Hot and exposed before China flat, but wonderfully shaded with wildflowers galore once you're there! We saw morning glories, sticky monkeys, lupine, baby blue eyes, goldenrod, heartleaf, wooly blue, and yarrow. Very nice view North and South once you're at the top, but watch out for the wasps that built their nest right on the trail ~1 mile from the peak!!

Trail says closed on All Trails, but the sign at the trail head indicated it was open. Beautiful views. The first 1.7 miles are constant up hill. Levels off through China Flat for about a mile, and then another 1/2 to 3/4 mile up to Simi Peak. Did a SOTA Ham Radio Activation with 38 contacts all over the USA. K6RIN

Overall, this trail was very fun to hike! It was a long one but, the scenery here is absolutely fantastic! With lots of natural boulders and views of all of Ventura county and the ocean, this trail is a must go on!! Its a long mostly uphill trail but it’s worth it because you get a good workout! The middle section is a meadow and very lush and green! The peak is about 2,405 feet from sea level which for being in the area is the highest point there is! There’s an American flag up there and breathtaking views of the ocean and homes and hills! While some spots have graffiti, this trail has been well kept and on a day that’s not raining it’s totally fine! On rainy days, this one is a no because of all the rocks and potential for you to slip if you step on wet rocks. I’d definitely go back here any day!

First foray on a "hard' trail. Pleasantly surprised to find out it wasn't that bad. Couple steep areas, loose rock, but when you get to the flag it's a real feeling of accomplishment.
