Chivo Canyon Loop

7 MRT – Moderate (1,400′ elevation gain)
We will start our hike by descending into the mouth of Chivo Canyon from Cottonwood Drive. We will then hike up the canyon to an out-and-back side canyon that will lead to a nice view of Tapo Canyon. Then we’ll climb the ridge on the east side of Chivo Canyon via the Buckhorn Trail where we’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the area. We’ll complete our loop hike along a section of the old Marr Ranch Road and the Cliff Trail. Directions to meeting place: From Simi Valley, take Highway 118 to Yosemite Avenue. Drive 1.9 miles north to Westwood Street. Turn right on Westwood Street and park your car. Bring 2 to 3 quarts of water and a snack.
