DESCRIPTION OF HIKE: Moderate-to-strenuous 4.6 miles RT with 1,000 of elevation gain/loss. NOTE: This local hike replaces the Camp Three Falls to Lily Meadows hike that was originally planned for this date due to the forecast for high temperatures in that locale.

The hike starts along Kuehner Road north of Hwy 118 in Simi Valley (near the Hummingbird Ranch). The Hummingbird Trail passes through (and on) a variety of imposing rock formations along the way up to the Rocky Peak Fire Road including very large boulders and giant slabs of sandstone rock, many with small caves. Once we reach the fire road well return the way we came.

PREPAREDNESS: Bring 2-3 liters/quarts of water (or other suitable liquid) and lunch/snack. Wear appropriate footwear (preferably hiking boots) and be prepared for bright sunlight (sunglasses), heat (layers of clothing), and/or precipitation (rain gear). Hiking pole(s) and a camera might come in handy.

NOTE: At the beginning of each outing you will be required to read and sign a liability release form (a sign-in sheet).

DIRECTIONS TO THE TRAILHEAD:

Take Hwy 118 to the Kuehner Drive exit in eastern Simi Valley; exit the highway there.

Head north (away from the ocean) to the limited parking area at 2409 Kuehner Drive near the trailhead (just outside the gated entrance to Hummingbird Ranch). NOTE: Pay close attention to the parking signs in the area.

Alternatively, if no parking space is available at the trailhead, find a parking spot on a street in a neighborhood south of Hwy 118 (possibly along Menlo Street west of Kuehner Drive), park, and hike along the street(s) to the trailhead where well meet.
