"Explore the otherworldly rock formations that adorn the hillsides below Rocky Peak with this engaging yet challenging hike. Gaining 1,000 feet of elevation in just over 2 miles, the difficulty is overshadowed by the geological wonders you will be eager to investigate along the way." Read more

"Despite its proximity to a busy highway, this trail can be quite beautiful, combining dramatic rocky outcroppings with delicate wildflowers. The consistent elevation gain of 500 feet makes for a good workout as well. This hike can also be extended by switchbacking another mile or so uphill to a junction with Rocky Peak Trail, a popular path leading to a viewpoint with an elevation of 2,700 feet and one of the highest points in Simi Valley. Once the domain of the Chumash Indians, Simi Valley was discovered by eastern pioneers in the mid-nineteenth century as an ideal farming site for sheep and cattle. The name Simi allegedly came from the Chumash word Shimiji, which means little white clouds." Read more

"The Hummingbird Trail starts at the extreme northeast corner of Simi Valley (both the valley and the city of same name) and deviously ascends boulder-studded slopes to the crest of a long ridge leading north to Rocky Peak. This out-and-back jaunt is perfect for early-morning exercise, when the trail lies mostly in shadow." Read more

This hike winds through the sandstone rocks the area is known for. Plenty of caves and a great view of Simi and the San Fernando Valley. Took Hummingbird Trail until it met the Rocky Point Trail then continued up to the Old Oak. Strenuous hike but worth the effort. View pictures on "facebook.com/fdrexel"

This is a fun place. The big rocks are really cool, and they made up for the fact that the 118 freeway was in plain view nearly the entire trip. We played on the rocks, walked in narrow passages between them, hung out in cool caves...and we were the only people there. We lost the hummingbird trail pretty soon after we started the hike, which wasn't a big deal since the shrubs are so low that you can see where you are at all times. I wouldn't drive a long way to go here, but it's a fun way to spend an afternoon. Seems like a fun place for kids.
