Great vistas of the city below, interesting sandstone formations, beautiful Red Dead Redemption views and sounds. Look for snakes, lizards and few people on trail. No shade ever.

Enjoyed hiking this trail. Be ready for bicyclists. They sometimes come in groups.

This is a very technical ride imo. very rewarding at the top and an awesome view of the valley below... not alot of people on the trail today which made for a fast decent.

Within the first 100' I was in my gg and sucking wind. The climb is steady and somewhat technical. The peak of each climb is tuff..over the bars. The dh is fast and careful, the rocks and ruts could throw an inexperienced rider if you're not careful. good see you next time.

I have reviewed this trail before, and it is always interesting... great views & varied, unique topography. This time Chumash was the last leg of a 10-mile hike that started on Devil's Canyon at the top of Topanga on the SFV side. Gonna do it again in a couple weeks. Not an easy walk but well worth the trek. (took about 5 hrs at a casual pace.)

I was confused. I got to the end of Chumash trail and there was nothing to see... so I just kept going till I got to the complete top. I think I combined it with something else? It ended up being 8 miles. It had decent views.

Gradual hills and incline on the way out, definitely will work up a sweat. Makes the downhill on the way back even more enjoyable. One of my favorite hikes in the area!

My Chumash trail hike was cut a little short due to the potential for rain. It was a great trail offering nice inclines with fantastic views of Simi Valley. I look forward to coming back.

I love this trail. Hiked it twice in August. Second time was on a moonlit night with my Boy Scouts. Hit the trail around 7PM. It was so hot in the valley, but once we got through the rolling hills & the sun started dropping the breezes came in so cool and refreshing. On a clear day the views are spectacular-- all of Simi Valley & al the way out West to the Coast. Areas of the trail can be steep & narrow, especially as you near the Rocky Peak connector, but the trail is very well maintained. This is a fantastic trail in the moonlight. If you go in the daytime be prepared for no shade.
