From trailhead, Chumash climbs to the ridge of the Simi Hills. The trail is mostly single-track with some rocky and loose (sandy) sections. The top of the trail comes out at the Rocky Peak Trail. Go right to get to Hummingbird or Rocky Peak/118.

Summary:
Rode this trail for the first time today. Rode up from trailhead on Flanagan. Immediate climbing, no warm up. Great trail to ride, some pretty substantial climbing with loose soil, rocks, etc. Great trail to ride. 2.6 miles to Rocky Peak Road. Make sure you have some fitness to begin with, your lungs and heart rate will be put ot the test. Loved every bit of it.

Recommended Route:
Ran into a lot of riders descending this trail from Rocky Peak. Good loop from here and east on Rocky Peak Rd to Hummingbird Trail. But that is another story.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rocky Peak Road and Hummingbird Trail

Summary:
This trail id awesome if you have a full suspension bike. The top has some nice technical parts, but not too difficult. It's mainly a fast singletrack the whole way down. There were some washed out spots and sandy areas last time I rode it about a week ago. And becareful coming down because there is a lot of exposure from the fires last October. Tons of hickers on this trail. All in all this is an awesome trail that a decent rider can do.

Recommended Route:
Up Rocky Peak Down Chumash. If you do this in the summer start real early because it gets hot real quick and there isn't any shade.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hummingbird, Rocky Peak

Summary:
I just moved here from the bay area and this is the only trail I've found around here. Climbing up Chumash is nice since you can get into a good rythm, but I like it as a long, fast decent. Hummingbird is a great downhill if you've got the full-sus rig, but I'd rather climb it.

Recommended Route:
I like what one guy said--ride UP Hummingbird to the Rocky Peak Trail...a technical climb that will get your heart rate going. Then continue up the steep Rocky Peak to Chumash Trail and enjoy the long down hill back into town.

Anyone know any other rides around here? Let me know!
