Big Sky Trail Loop

DESCRIPTION OF HIKE: Easy-to-moderate 4.5-mile loop with 815’ of elevation gain/loss -OR- 3.0 miles and 350′ of elevation gain/loss.

The hike follows a trail that loops around the Big Sky housing development north of Highway 118. It climbs up an eastern ridge in the foothills of the Santa Susana Mountains then heads north along the ridge providing views of mountains in all directions including nearby Whiteface Mountain. The return portion of the loop winds along the oak-lined stream that runs through the development.

PREPAREDNESS: Bring 2-3 liters/quarts of water (or other suitable liquid) and lunch/snack. Wear appropriate footwear (preferably hiking boots) and be prepared for bright sunlight (sunglasses), heat (layers of clothing), and/or precipitation (rain gear). Hiking pole(s) and a camera might come in handy.

NOTE: At the beginning of each outing you will be required to read and sign a liability release form (a sign-in sheet).


Take Hwy 118 to the Erringer Road exit.

Head north 0.2 mile on Erringer Road (passing Alamo Street) to Big Sky Place (just before the entrance to the Big Sky housing development).

Turn right on Big Sky Place, park on the left (west) side of the street close to its junction with Erringer Road, and wait for the hiking leader(s).
