Located in the northernmost section of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, the hills here allow water from the canyons to flow to the Pacific. The Chumash Indians lived in these canyons for thousands of years and many of today's hiking trails in the canyons were originally cleared by the Chumash before they were expanded by cattle ranches. The park has a great diversity of plants and wildlife, including deer, bobcats, coyotes, rabbits, owls, hawks, and other raptors (birds of prey). In fact, the park has the largest concentrations of birds of prey nesting areas in the Continental U.S. Valley Oak trees, the largest oaks native to the U.S. and probably the world, live in these canyons. The several hiking trails available range from easy to strenuous.
Located at Cheeseboro Rd. and Palo Comado Rd.
