Sage Ranch Park: Sage Ranch Loop Trail

Really like this trail, It's relatively easy, has some very nice rock formations. Views are good once you get to some of the higher elevations. Boeing is off to the left at the beginning (going clockwise around the loop) and it's a large facility, but on a Monday they were very few cars in the parking lot. Other reviews have helpful information like avoiding the trail on hot summer days. One other cautionary note. Hiking the trail requires traversing sloping sandstone. These areas can pick up a thin layer of sand which makes them very slippery. Wear shoes with lug soles and don't be careless about your footing.

Easy hike, but get there early because it gets hot! Great views and rock formations. There was some broken glass in the parking area, so make sure to lock your cars and don't leave any valuables. I recommend lots of water and sunscreen.

Love this park for a quick afternoon hike. Usually not many people there and a lot of cool boulders to climb around on. I also enjoy going off the trail to see the great views of Simi Valley.

Sage Ranch is a nice trail! Hikers are exposed to many nice views and rock formations. There are pleasant oak trees and other vegetation. Nice trail for a run. it's great for winter and early spring because it can be hot. I agree with most others to travel the loops clockwise to avoid the steep asphalt road until the end on the way down.

If you park in the lower lot it's free! I would suggest hiking the park in a clockwise direction and taking the road back down to your vehicle after your finish the loop. The hike shouldn't take you longer than a hour to complete, but the highlight is taking some detours and playing around on the rock formations. Been here twice and plan to visit a few more times in the near future. Fun place for an adventure! 6.25 out of 10. Beware, summers are sizzling.

I love taking my dog and daughters on this hike. It's easy enough that we can fast walk and still get a nice workout, or meander if my youngest (3 1/2) is with us. Once you get past the funky toxic sludge factory (don't let this deter you!) the hike is lovely and there are plenty of offshoot paths to keep kids interested. It's also relatively quick - under 2 hours - so if you are pressed for time but still want some exercise this is a great choice and a regular for our family.
