ABOUT THIS SITE:

NOTE: YELLOW SHADING: Rex’s hikes for the week

The Hikes for the Week list below contains only free, non-repeating hikes in L.A. and Ventura Counties. I also have excluded hikes in Griffith Park and Mount Baldy as there are 1 or more group hikes nearly every day in those parks by one of the many Meetup groups, so see the Google calendar at the bottom of the page for those and all other scheduled hikes from around 50 meetup groups in most of Southern California.

THE HIKES FOR THE WEEK LIST IS USUALLY UPDATED ON SUNDAYS. HIKES MAY CHANGE. SO…FOR THE MOST UP-TO-THE-MINUTE LISTINGS, SEE THE AUTOMATICALLY-GENERATED GOOGLE CALENDAR AT THE LINK ABOVE OR AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE)

ALSO: the Google calendar carries all Meetup hikes listed for several months ahead, or even next year. Just slide the arrow down on the right hand side of the calendar and check it out!

Hike Calendar for October 6-13, 2014

FEATURED HIKE THIS WEEK:

SUNDAY OCTOBER 12TH AT 2 PM

FOR MORE INFORMATION:
http://www.meetup.com/hiking-196/events/212013562/

A LOOP THROUGH LOTS OF AMAZING ROCKS AND CAVES IN THE SANTA SUSANA MOUNTAINS VIA THE HUMMINGBIRD, ROCKY PEAK AND CORRIGANVILLE TRAILS

--TRAILHEAD: located just north of the 118 Freeway in Simi Valley at the Kuehner Road offramp.
--THERE WILL BE THREE STOPS ALONG THE WAY TO CLIMB ON AND EXPLORE ROCKS AND CAVES
--Elevation Gain: we start at 1200 feet, and hit 2175 feet at the "Rock House"
--Distance: I forget, maybe 7 miles plus assorted rock exploration
--SO: expect to be hiking and climbing rocks from 2 to 6pm

THE ROUTE:
We start at the Hummingbird trailhead, and climb 1000 feet to the Rocky Peak fireroad. Along the way are numerous cool rocky outcrops and an area of caves which we will stop at for maybe an hour of exploring. At the top of this trail is the Rock House (a big cave-room) where we can enjoy great views of the Valleys (on a clear day you can see 60 miles to the ocean in Ventura).
Then we head back down the Rocky Peak fire road and cross over the 118 freeway bridge and turn west on the Stagecoach trail as it enters the old Corriganville movie ranch. There are several sources of cool drinking water here and porta potties and SOME SHADE!!!!. We will then climb up the big rocks there, and then loop back through a neighborhood to our cars and skateboards.
