Mostly Dry, Some Mud: It's mostly dry with a wet downhill. Rain ruts but still plenty fun. Would not recommend unless it hasn't rained in 2 days History

Getting forecast...

A fun climb combined with a great DH trail.

Overview

This is a combination of arguably the two best trails in Simi Valley. This ride has a mixed bag of goodies to delight any rider.

Description

From the Chumash trailhead, start the 2.5-mile climb up the singletrack Chumash Trail until it ends at the Rocky Peak Road. Along the way, you'll encounter many tricky technical sections (loose rocks, boulders, a few tight switchbacks), that will surely challenge a wide range of riders.

At the top of Chumash, take a right on the fire road (it's technically a fire road but it has a lot of technical sections not normally associated with fire roads) and blast it to the Hummingbird trailhead.

The Hummingbird trail packs a mixed bag of terrain. Loose rocks, large boulders, a 8-10' roller drop, tight switchbacks, high-speed sections, and a few small jumps.

The end of the trail dumps you out into the Hummingbird parking lot. From here, you'll see a white fence across the street, go through the fence and follow the fire road until you see the culvert. Follow it until it turns into singletrack (Hummingbird) that heads towards a water tower. Follow the singletrack and it will take you back to the Chumash trailhead.

I rode this as a full loop. Super green from all the rain. Pay attention as there are other trails that criss-cross. Never ride this trail unless it has been dry for a few days. Went once after it had rained the day before and I made it a little ways up before the clay clogged up my bike so much it wouldn't even roll downhill. Came back another time when it was dry and it was a blast. Super intense rocky downhill. Not an easy trail but lots of fun and challenging. Mar 11, 2019
