Nice wide trail for the most part. Mix of mask and non mask wearers, but can mostly keep a good distance. Cyclists and horses. Mild temps for the middle of the day. I can imagine it’s pretty muddy when it rains, but it’s dry right now. Lots of birds!

Trail was pretty easy...I had my baby and dog with me. I crossed paths with 10 people on the trail, only 1 had a mask and bothered to keep the 6ft distance for us. As a nurse who is now working in COVID...and having to watch people gasp for breath they will never get again...I am sad people can’t make way for each other on a wide trail, let alone slap a piece of cloth over their face when they pass someone.

Always a great trail system to visit. I put a few routes together to make a 10-mile loop. No shade so bring plenty of water on a hot day like today.

Nice simple hike, easy to barely moderate. Not much foot traffic even on a Saturday. Nice quick break from the city as it seems very isolated. Enjoyable!

Hiked this 1/31. The trailhead is located off the side of a road and easy to miss. Started around 1pm and only saw 2 other cars parked at the time. This hike is set up like a lollipop where you hike the stem, do a loop then hike back down the stem. The “stem” is about 1.5 miles and mostly fire road. The last .2-.3 miles were a gradual incline with beautiful views behind you. At the top I went right which descends for about a half mile then takes a sharp left to close the loop. Just a heads up, if you don’t have alltrails or a map this left is easy to miss. The next half mile you ascend back to the top of the loop with beautiful 360 views of Simi Valley. After heading back down, I returned to the trailhead a little before 3pm. Only saw a handful of people over the few miles which was surprising as the weather was beautiful on a Sunday. A nice hike with decent views, highly recommend it.

The terrain was super nice despite the fact that it rained yesterday. The first mile or so is easy peasy. After that you’ve got some incline. The loop takes you down into the canyon. I recommend going counter clockwise if you want more of a workout. I’d rate this hike on the easy-moderate side. The mountains were beautiful.

Great. I really liked the back loop. I tried to record the hike but I lost service at a certain point so it’s showing the recorded trip as shorter as it really was.

Nice little morning hike with our pooch. Love the wide trail. Nice for families and biking. There are some shady spots from oak trees, but I imagine it could be hot in the summer.
