Our hike in the Simi Hills will begin along a single-track trail, but will soon continue on an old dirt-and-rock road as it rises up the south side of the mountain, providing ever-expanding views to the south.  Upon reaching the apex of the old road, we’ll descend into lovely China Flat with its oak trees and sprawling grassy meadows.  Then we’ll follow a trail that leads up to Simi Peak (2,403’), the highest point in the Simi Hills, where we’ll have a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Bring 2 to 3 quarts of water, lunch and sunscreen. Wear boots.
