Sage Ranch Park: Sage Ranch Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Intriguing sandstone formations and backdrops that are literally right out of a Western movie are two highlights of a hike in Sage Ranch Park. The park, perched high in the Simi Hills on the Los Angeles-Ventura county line, offers magnificent rural and metropolitan views from its 2,000-foot high ridges. Mostly what you notice at Sage Ranch is an odd tapestry of native, exotic and cultivated flora. Native plants are well represented within the oak woodland ecosystem, and by such chaparral community members as chamise, ceanothus, coffeeberry and California buckwheat. Invaders include castor bean, Australian salt bush and assorted thistles. Abandoned orange and avocado groves are the third component of the ranch’s diverse plant life."
