Today we will hike up the Chumash Trail in Simi Valley, and turn left at the top to the “Triangle” as Barbara calls it. The hike will be an out and back, and will be 7.7 miles with 1600 ft gain. It’s a nice mostly single track trail during the first climb with pretty views of the hills around. The final mile or so to the turn-around is fire-road.
We recommend you use poles as the Chumash Trail has some rocks on it.
Directions: put “Chumash Park and Trail” into your chosen map service. We will park on Flanagan Drive or thereabout. From the 118, exit Yosemite headed north, turn right on Flanagan Dr after .4 miles, then proceed about .8 miles to trailhead on right.
