The Chumash Trail is a 2.5 mile long trail that extends from Flanagan Drive in Simi Valley to the top of the ridges 1.3 miles north of Rocky Peak. It is a part of the Chumash Natural Park that includes sandstone rock formations, caves, and beautiful vistas of Simi Valley. This is a moderate hike that is used by runners, hikers, and bikers. The land is owned by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Rancho Simi Recreation & Park District. It is maintained by the Rancho Simi Trailblazers and patrolled by the Volunteer Trail Safety Service.
How to Get There:
To access the Chumash Trailhead, travel north from the 118 freeway on Yosemite Avenue. Take a right on Flanagan Drive (first right north of Alamo St.). Flanagan Drive will come to an end at the Chumash trail. Park on the eastern side of Flanagan as northern as possible.
