Need to Know

The parking area at the southern end of the trail is small.

Description

This is quite a steep fire road going up the hill, so be sure to take it very easy. This route is commonly used by mountain bikers, so stay alert. Lastly, the fire road doesn't offer any shade, so bringing plenty of water, and sun protection is a must!

Flora & Fauna

Dung beetles and lizards are what you'll find out here.

Even though you're not far from the city, it feels like no man's land.

Scenery you'll see, and no, the picture doesn't do the reality justice!

The fork taking you off of Rocky Peak Fire Road down the fun Chumash Trail singletrack descent. Keep your ears open for mountain bikers as some advanced riders do descend on this trail.
