I did this hike with VHC sometime ago. We will start from Lang Ranch Blvc where the trail is is just before the road turns left and ends. We will not be starting from the trail across from the park.
We will start from the trail head and go about 1/2 mile. This will be a little exploratory as I have to look for the spot. We will go straight up the hill on the right. It is very steep. Some scrambling required. We will then follow the ridge until we get to Simi Peak. There are nice views along the way.
