Two Hikes In One Day

Got up earlier than normal today because Linda was coming by to pick up me and Hiker to go over to a trail she discovered last week. We drove over to Rocky Peak near Simi Valley and hiked the Hummingbird Trail. Don't know how it got its name because I did not see any hummers nor did I see any flowers that would attract hummers. The trail was very steep in some places. We did almost a 2 mile hike there and then decided since we were so close to Simi Valley and Corriganville Movie Ranch that we'd head over to the ranch and hike around there. Linda had never been there. I had been there a couple of times before. Corriganville Movie Ranch is where they used to film western movies and TV shows back in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. They also filmed old “Tarzan” movies there and TV shows like “Robin Hood”. They have sign posts along the loop trail telling about the different locations around the ranch where they shot the movies and TV shows. There used to be a western town there, but all of the buildings are gone now except for their foundations. I think Linda really enjoyed this place for its history. We did another 2 miles around the ranch and then headed into the city of Simi Valley for lunch at Carl's Jr. Hiker really enjoyed herself. She was climbing the trails and sniffing everything. Started getting a little cloudy and windy outside this afternoon.

  1. Sounds like a great day. I was hoping you would see the hummingbirds there. The movie ranch sounds like a fun place to hike. Great post and I like the photo.
