Corriganville and Brunch, Simi Valley
Are you a photography buff or a fan of old western movies? Then Corriganville is a perfect place to visit. We will embark on a short, 3+ mile hike (perfect for beginners) and go back in time to the actual locations where great old movies and tv shows were filmed. Check out http://www.corriganville.net. The new Quentin Tarantino film, “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood,” recently was filmed there. Hopefully the set is still available for us to explore. Bring those camera’s, there is a plethora of areas to photograph, including awesome rock formations. Today’s hike will start promptly at 9:00, so plan your time accordingly. We will meet at the Corriganville main entrance on Smith road (directions below). Anyone interested in brunch after the hike? The Old Susana Café is one of Simi Valley’s landmark restaurants with an authentic stagecoach in the front.

What we're about

Hiking is fun and exhilarating, it's a connection between you and nature. So, take advantage of the benefits of the great outdoors, and breathe in the air from the top of a mountain. Feel the calming nature of your mind, body, and soul as you unwind from the stress of everyday activities. Reward yourself with improved fitness and hiking techniques. Rekindle old friendships and make new friends.

We are hikers and explorers which can be many things, from hiking the highest mountain to a photography or a silent (one with nature) hike. We will hike trails, sandy beaches, asphalt roads(?) yes sometimes. We will explore new areas and re-explore old. Everyone will have an opportunity to enjoy variations of that wonderful thing called hiking.

All skills levels are welcome. I'm looking forward to exploring the outdoors with everybody.
