Geologically, the park is located where the Simi Hills meet the Santa Susana Mountains. Here in the western part of the Transverse Ranges, the land is dominated by high, narrow ridges and deep canyons covered with an abundant variety of plant life.

The park is also rich in archaeological, historical, and cultural significance.Before you head to Simi Valley, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Simi Valley visit planning tool, to make sure you see all that Simi Valley has to offer, including Santa Susana Pass State Historical Park.
Santa Susana Pass State Historical Park reviews
We went here to hike to the old watering tubs on the historic stagecoach road... Very neat... Limited parking at the trailhead... Nice trail, but it would be better to have a few more signs at major..... more »
My dog and I go hiking about 3-4 times a week. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Clean fresh air. Lots and lots of trails. more »
Oh I have a love hate relationship with this hike. Very rewarding but when the sun is high it can be a challenge. The view is amazing though and when you check the number or floors hiked on your Fitbit you feel so accomplished.
This park absolutely beautiful. The scenery is unreal. It's a shame there are people out there that feel the need to break bottles and leave the shards everywhere. I highly recommend coming here for a leisure hike. It's pretty quiet, calm and relaxing.
