The super steep Ladyface Mountain – I’ve taken it’s picture on several trips and today I hiked it. It was a hot day and this trail requires a lot of concentration, so when things started getting hairy I stowed my camera and didn’t take many pictures. This was quite a journey.
Paramount Studios purchased this land in the 1920’s and shot numerous movies and television shows here for the next 30 or so years. The land changed hands in the 50’s and then once again when it was bought by the park system. Beyond the touristy “Western Town” there is some real hiking to be done here.
Finally back to hiking after three long weeks away. This hike, located in Moorpark, is mostly flat. The first half is on the canyon bottom and the return on a high ridge. Overall I was, as the name suggests, happy with the hike.
