Cheseboro Canyon Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located among the rolling hills that separate the San Fernando and Conejo Valleys, Cheseboro Canyon is an ideal place for day hiking. This pleasant hike takes you through pastoral meadows and shady oak groves to the head of the historic canyon. With several unique features and an abundance of trails, this is an area that you will want to visit again and again.
Equally rich in history and natural beauty, Cheeseboro Canyon is a wonderful place to visit. For thousands of years the Native American Chumash people called this area home, and they established many of the trails still in use today. The land was later used extensively for cattle ranching, resulting in the barren hillsides that surround the lower part of the canyon. After the native plant population was decimated by the grazing cattle, ranchers planted nonnative wild oats, mustard, and thistle to better suit the needs of heavy grazing."
