Old Stagecoach Trail

Old Stagecoach Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Old Stagecoach Trail begins in Chatsworth Park South and climbs through the undeveloped wilderness of the Santa Susana Mountains. The route follows the historic Santa Susana Stage Road that once linked Los Angeles with San Francisco from 1859–1890. A web of unmarked and confusing trails weaves through rounded, fractured sedimentary rock to vistas of the city of Chatsworth, the San Fernando Valley, and the Santa Susana Mountains. Near the ridge is a plaque embedded into the sandstone rock. The marker was installed by the Native Daughters of the Golden West in 1937, designating the Old Santa Susana Stage Road."

"The Simi Hills are a vital wildlife corridor between several mountain ranges. This unique area features beautiful sandstone rock formations. Stagecoaches traveled through these rocky hills on the Old Stagecoach Road. Running here brings to mind the many classic movie Westerns filmed nearby."

"Clear-air vistas of the San Fernando Valley and surrounding mountain ranges are as spectacular as they come when seen from the Old Stagecoach Road above Chatsworth. The boulder-stacked hillsides rising from the valley seem strongly reminiscent of the golden backdrops seen in old Western movies and television shows, because they really did play a background role in many of those productions."
