For the last six months I have been hiking all across the Santa Monica Mountains so I decided to change things up a bit. I drove out to Simi Valley to give the Santa Susana Mountains a try. For some reason I was expecting disappointment but was met with something quite different and often astounding. I hiked two trails, Hummingbird Creek Trail and Rocky Peak Trail to the junction with Johnson Motorway. You can call this the hike of a billion rocks as the landscape is loaded with boulders, slabs and caves. Yes, it was a bit crowded and near a major freeway but the scenery more than made up for it. This hike has given me the inspiration to venture out and explore other mountain ranges.
