Canoga Park, California Map

Nice start with good views and pretty scenery, but the detour is overgrown and more difficult than the rest of the trail.

The first half of the trail is fine but the current detour is a nightmare - narrow trail loaded with bees. Also, the water fountain at the campsite doesn't give clean water.

Very easy and going anti-clockwise, the first half is the most interesting. Good views of Simi and beyond.
No real shade so plan accordingly.

Good hike! Some fun rocks to climb.

Built a new trail from the campground. Lots of new stuff to see. Great job.

This was a great hike. Although they claim it's closed to clean an old trap and skeet range they are really cleaning up toxic waste.

WARNING: Part of the Sage Ranch Loop Trail is closed to clean up the remnants of a trap and skeet range. I did not see anything on-line about the closure. Two names with numbers are provided on the signs. For more information contact Kamara Sams Boeing 818 466-8793 or Rorie Skei Sage Ranch SMMC 310 589-3200. You can still get to Turtle Rock. The closure is on the south west portion of the loop. There are nice wildflowers and as always great rocks to climb.

Super close to where we live yet feels a world away!

Did this hike with a group including children between the ages of 9 and 13. Hike was a huge hit due to the rocks to climb. A couple of the parents joined in. All the climbers got way to close to the edge, but no one fell. That alone made the hike a success. Take this hike with kids and plan time for rock climbing. We luckily got it all in before the rain came...you could see the front approaching. Timed it just right as it started raining within minutes of starting my drive home.

This hike was enjoyable, even though I wasn't fond of being near the Boeing facility. It was an easy short workout with nice views.

Did this trail again after avoiding it for most of the summer. The summer sun can make this a miserable hike since there isn't much shade. It was mostly cloudy and cool in the west Valley today so I took advantage and did the loop. It was in the low 70s with a cool wind. Actually appreciated the warmth of the sun when it poked through the clouds. Did the hike faster than I have in the past. The sun wasn't sapping my energy so the climbs were easier. All in all a really good hike.

Beautiful scenery! I like that it was not crowded.

Trail in good condition. Agree with comment that counter clockwise is best.

Saturday, March 26, 2016

Did this trail again with a friend, his children, and their dog. Everyone really enjoyed the hike. Did it counter-clockwise this time as opposed to my usual clockwise direction. There are advantages and disadvantages to the counter-clockwise direction. One advantage is that the climbs are split between the beginning and end of the hike and are somewhat less onerous than the long climb necessary doing the trail clockwise. The bigger advantage is that you get better views going counter-clockwise. Obviously, this can be solved by turning around when hiking clockwise but it isn't necessarily something you think to do as you're trudging along. The big disadvantage is that the hike gets rather uninteresting for the last half. All the views and real interesting rock formations are in the first half of the hike. I can't really make a recommendation which way is better. To me it's a toss up.

Really like this trail, It's relatively easy, has some very nice rock formations. Views are good once you get to some of the higher elevations. Boeing is off to the left at the beginning (going clockwise around the loop) and it's a large facility, but on a Monday they were very few cars in the parking lot. Other reviews have helpful information like avoiding the trail on hot summer days. One other cautionary note. Hiking the trail requires traversing sloping sandstone. These areas can pick up a thin layer of sand which makes them very slippery. Wear shoes with lug soles and don't be careless about your footing.

I like the Trail. not too difficult not too many steep grades fun trail.

Easy hike, but get there early because it gets hot! Great views and rock formations. There was some broken glass in the parking area, so make sure to lock your cars and don't leave any valuables. I recommend lots of water and sunscreen.

Love this park for a quick afternoon hike. Usually not many people there and a lot of cool boulders to climb around on. I also enjoy going off the trail to see the great views of Simi Valley.

Sage Ranch is a nice trail! Hikers are exposed to many nice views and rock formations. There are pleasant oak trees and other vegetation. Nice trail for a run. it's great for winter and early spring because it can be hot. I agree with most others to travel the loops clockwise to avoid the steep asphalt road until the end on the way down.

If you park in the lower lot it's free! I would suggest hiking the park in a clockwise direction and taking the road back down to your vehicle after your finish the loop. The hike shouldn't take you longer than a hour to complete, but the highlight is taking some detours and playing around on the rock formations. Been here twice and plan to visit a few more times in the near future. Fun place for an adventure! 6.25 out of 10. Beware, summers are sizzling.
