The Simi Hills and Santa Susana Mountains meet, and the pass between them has become a historical park with hiking and biking trails, a historical site, exhibits, and a picnic area.

We head to Rocky Peak Park when we’re in the mood to view a good sunset. The park is 4,800 acres, so it’s easy enough to get away from it all and enjoy some solitude.

Learn about the history of Simi Valley at the Simi Adobe – Strathearn House. This site was the headquarters of Rancho Simi, a Spanish government land grant. There was a Chumash village on the site (and in many other places throughout the area) before the Spanish arrived and some of their histories are documented here as well, as that’s where the name Simi comes from.
