on Las Llajas Trail

Nice 9 mile loop. I started on Las Llajas and ended with the Chumash Trail. Las Llajas is a smooth fire road while Chumash is a technical single track so plenty of variety plus great views.

The weather was great for a hike. We parked our car behind the museum in the parking lot and walked up the fire road passed by The Village. There was no trail sign so we just kept following the fire road. Eventually we got lost and wound up at the top of Long Canyon Trail. We couldn't figure out the loop so we just came back the same way completing 5.7 miles by the end. Conclusion: take a map with you. The GPS didn't work well.

This hike is amazing. The views go on as far as the eye can see. I felt like the further back on the trail I went the more beautiful the scenery was. Well worth the climb!

Pretty in the spring, after rains. Wildflowers. Kind of steep in some places on the way up. About a mile up you arrive at an expansive field with offshoot trails. Dog, kid and mountain bike friendly. Plenty of parking at entrance.

Like this trail a lot and it has become my regular trail, very pretty. Very overgrown right now on the trail that runs parallel to Long Canyon Road - I hope they trim it back because you are brushing up against all the grass and bushes through that part. And a big heads up - it's tick season! I pulled 3 off my dog today and had 1 fall out of my shirt when I came home and was changing. Also, lots of fox tails right now on all the dry grass. It was an expensive trip to the vet to have one removed from my dog's ear canal. No, you cannot see it inside the ear - but your dog will be shaking their head.

Easy trail. At a slow pace about 90 minutes. Lots of birds. Also look for the seashell fossils in the rocks.

Very nice casual hike. Perfect for kids, great views with beautiful wild flowers in the spring.

Beautiful green and lush. Got lost at some point because there are other trails that branch off but no trailhead signs. Worth it though for a quick workout.

I went on this hike to find the steam shovel. I asked a lot of people and no one knew what I was talking about when I would stop them to ask for directions, but thanks to a group of people that I ran into. They knew exactly where it was at and told me how to get there. From the beginning you hike 2.7 miles. So about 700 feet after you cross the creek for the 3rd time. Right at 2.7 you will see a small trail that is 12 inches wide on the left. Take that up for 1.8 and make sure to take water because that 1.8 is all incline, but it is not too bad. A kid can do it and so can a dog or you can even mountain bike it.

I love this trail, the views at the top are very picturesque!

Moderate hike. Wide trail with great views of Simi and the surrounding areas.

Love this trail!! Great for the

I would not recommend bringing your dogs on this trail, there is a thorny weed growing in abundance out there, it will stick in their paws, and my dogs eye got scratched which I'm contributing to this thorny weed as well. It is a beautiful place but go without your dog to explore.

Awesome hike!! Great workout!

Great hike with good elevation. No shade but beautiful scenic route through big rock formations, a couple of caves along the way. This trail intersects with Rocky Peak so you have the option to continue up Rocky Peak for a longer hike with more elevation. Weather was perfect for long hike today. Hiked all the way to “Sea Shell” ridge. This point is another thousand feet of elevation and at one time must have been an ocean floor because you can find sea shells scattered, check out the photo of the rock with embedded shell. Also stunning views along the route; Simi Valley on one side, San Fernando Valley on the other side. This trail also intersects with Chumash trail, will check out next time. Will definitely add to my fav list.

Actually if you start out on the trail and make a direct right after the gate you will find a beautiful trail the full loop is about 6 miles and it is a more moderate trail.

starts off easy if you are going clockwise, but about 3 miles in it gets tough.

Solid hike and a workout! The way out is a steady climb with some substantial inclines. The trail is rock and hardscrabble. Bring a lot of water. There is not much shade. Views of urban sprawl are really good.

Love this trail! The views are some of the most spectacular I have seen, and it doesn’t even take too much effort to see them. It’s awesome being able to see both sides of the mountain. The freeway is quite loud for most of the beginning of the trail but once you get further into the mountain, it’s very peaceful and doesn’t feel like you’re that close to civilization at all. Definitely brings tons of water and sunscreen because there is hardly any shade.

This trail is an incline all the way up until it meets rocky peak trail. It is a challenge but worth it! It will give your legs a work out but the terrain is awesome. It is hard on the knees if you are one that may have knee problems. I would highly recommend this as an early morning hike because there is no shade. Bring plenty of water. While we went in the afternoon it was still a fun but very tiring hike.
