Details

We will start out surrounded by wild lilacs and a stroll through Hidden Meadow. Soon we will be hiking among the fanciful sandstone formations, caves and arches of the Rabbit Ridge Trail. After a couple of miles we’ll ascend to Simi Peak where on a clear day you can see the Simi Valley, Conejo Valley, San Fernando Valley, Oxnard Plains, Pacific Ocean, and a few of the Channel Islands, and take our snack break. Then its onward to a loop around China Flats, an open area with clusters of oak trees and a vernal pond. China Flats was the filming area for Back to the Future’s 1885 Hill Valley.  A combination of utility roads, maintained, unmaintained and disappearing trails will create a dual loop hike.

Bring your best lugsoles for this one. Trekking poles are recommended.
