Summary:
What a great trail to ride down. I am not sure about climbing the trail, but going downhill was great. Not too technical on top, but then gets more technical as you find your way down. The middle rock section, similar to slickrock, was fantastic. The tight swithcbacks and small drops were fun. I can see where you can ride in over your head easily if you don't pay attention. Not for the faint of heart.

Recommended Route:
Rode up Chumash trail to Rocky Peak Rd and then east to trailhead. There is a trail post to mark the trail and a bench for a rest. A great reward for all the climbing earlier from chumash.

Summary:
One of my favorite trails for sure! Nice climb from Kuehner up, then up Rocky Peak. Only someone with steel balls can climb from 118 up the pass and up Rocky Peak with out pushing. Technical DH sections with some nice drops off the beaten path, Moab section...... Disrespect this trail and it will toss you:) Not to scare anyone away, I have seen my 100mm brothers and sisters put-put down this trail and have just as much fun as one of those EVIL DH guys. TOTALLY worth your time even if your not into that DH stuff cuz it really isn't that bad. It's the perfect mix and contrary to other posts very little traffic except for peak time when weather is perfect.... I know I do it once a week as part of my training.

Recommended Route:
Exit 118 and park N of freeway. Ride up Kuehner to Rocky Peak (22 mins) and up Rocky Peak Fire Road (25min) and you are there! Drop your seat and GO!

Summary:
This is a short (less than 2mile) downhill with rocks and some switchbacks that make it a challenging but a fun ride.
I am an cross country rider with a full suspension bike and an intermediate rider. This is my 2nd favorite short-downhill-fun-ride next to El Prieto in San Gabriel Mountains.
Look for the posts that reads "hummingbird trail" from Rocky Peak road about 1/4 mile from the trail head (exit 118 on Rock Peak Rd)

Recommended Route:
Up Chumash (single track uphill gets you pumping) Rocky Peak Road (kick back and relax) down Humingbird (reap what you sow)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Johnsons Motorway

Summary:
Here’s a better idea for riding Hummingbird Trail as a loop. This alternate will allow you to avoid the pavement climb of Santa Susana Pass Road, and instead add several miles of beautiful single track.

Recommended Route:
After riding Hummingbird to the bottom, most people ride Kuehner Road SOUTH to hook up with Santa Susana Pass Road. Instead, while on Kuehner, before you get to the bridge over the railroad tracks, turn left on Smith Road and proceed EAST into Corriganville Park. Continue through the park’s dirt parking lot and follow the trail that continues past the lot (continuing EAST). Keep staying right so that eventually you will veer out at the railroad tracks about 150 yards before the train tunnel. Carefully cross the tracks and look for two yellow posts on the other side. Continue between the posts, veer left and you will pass a small square section of chain-link fence. This is the beginning of the REAL Stagecoach Trail, built in the 1870s, that will take you all the way to the top of Santa Susana Pass Road just before Rocky Peak. The trail is well established now after lots of hard work cutting back the overgrown vegitation. There is one fork about ¾ mile up the singletrack – you will stay left, cross a dry creek, and then continue climbing to the top.

Riding this trail is more strenuous than the pavement climb, but we feel it’s much more enjoyable climbing singletrack than taking your chances with the cell-phone distracted motorists using Santa Susan Pass Road as a commute. We hope you enjoy it too!
