Simi Valley is know for it’s unique hiking trails, but there’s something particularly special about them in the spring. Our trails are often lined with vibrant wildflowers. From California Poppies to Desert Dandelions, you’ll love wildflower season.
Here’s a list of the five best hikes to take in Simi Valley this spring to catch a glimpse of the wildflower blooms:
Corriganville Park is home to an old western town made specifically for movies, but today it serves as a park. The old town is still there, which is a popular attraction, but during the springtime it’s the California Poppies that people come to see.
For the best chance to see poppies, take the Interpretive Trail or the Loop Trail on the east side of the park. You’ll find the poppies just a short distance into your walk.
The Chumash Trail is a beautiful hike brimming with wildflowers during the peak spring season. This 2.5 mile hike extends along the top ridges of popular Rocky Peak. The hills are peppered with sandstone rock formations, caves and will delight hikers of all moderate ability with their expansive vista views of the valley below.
