Wildwood Park – Box Canyon Trail / Lower Butte

Trail Stats: 6.6 miles, 1000 ft elevation gain This loop is an option for those who don’t want to ride along the narrow trail among the cactus on Upper Santa Rosa Trail. This route is a great get away from crowds. The footing is hard packed, loose rocks; the hills are mostly moderate; a few switchbacks with a couple steep hills. There is a low tunnel; equestrians should dismount before entering the tunnel. Hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding are recommended. There is approximately .4 mile of residential street riding. This loop is not  recommended for bikes during the wet season.   Video Buy the Trail Book Share...

Simi Valley-Johnson Motorway to Chumash Trail

Trail Stats: 6.4 miles one way, 1450 ft. elevation gain There are approximately 4 miles of street riding to connect the trails. The trail begins through a private community. Public access trail use is granted for pedestrians and cyclists, restricting access for equestrians. (Equestrians can do an out-and-back reverse ride take the Chumash Trail to Johnson Motorway beginning at Flannagan Dr.) These are some of my favorite Simi trails. The footing is mainly rocky with sandstone rocks, some dirt, and sections of sand. The trails are exposed to the sun with little shade. Chumash trail is a single track with some steep technical sections climbing up sandstone rocks with exposed edges on one side. Johnson Mtwy is a more gradual climb and not as technical as Chumash...
