Details

There are at least 40 types of native plants at this wilderness preserve, (saved in 2013 by someone I know). Lots of them are in bloom right now, like the wooly blue curls in the featured hike photo, black sage, golden yarrow, hummingbird sage and sticky monkey flower.

Here is a full-color guide to over 120 native plants of the surrounding area: https://www.boeing.com/resources/boeingdotcom/principles/environment/pdf/boeing_plants_at_santa_susana.pdf

WHERE TO MEET: at the Rocky Peak trailhead parking area located at the SOUTH end of the Rocky Peak offramp bridge at the 118 freeway, at the intersection with Santa Susana Pass Road.

DISTANCE: 4 miles. Difficulty: moderate. Hike is all on trails and monkeying around on the nearby rocks is optional.

All the usual meet up rules apply....we're not responsible for anything....we're not your mom....bla bla bla

Everyone must sign a liability waiver....yup, Damn lawyers, because this 120 acre preserve is private property, and it does not have the automatic liability immunity which public parks have.
