This is a pleasant hike, particularly during the spring when the hills are green and wildflowers are out. Be forewarned that the trail is a sustained uphill trek. There are several spectacular vistas where you can look out over the city of Simi Valley and on a clear day you can even see the Channel Islands. It's not unusual to see hawks circling above and even a deer once in a great while. This trail is also used by mountain bikers so keep a heads up for the speedy downhill riders.
