Pico Canyon cuts deeply into the northern Santa Susana Mountains, a few miles south of the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park. The canyon is considered to be the birthplace of the oil industry in California (ignoring the smallscale use of oil tar as a caulking agent by early Native Americans and missionaries).
