Upper Las Virgenes Canyon (Formely Ahmanson Ranch)

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

This area is relatively new. It was previously called Ahmanson Ranch. There are two entrances (that I know about) at the east. One is on Vanowen St, just west of Valley Circle Blvd and the other is at the west end of Victory Blvd with parking. I think they charge $1. Mostly fire roads. Go to this url of the Santa Monica Mtns Conservancy for info

Summary:
NOT EASY AND EASY TO GET KINDA LOST IN A GORGEOUS SPECTACULAR DECOR !
START AT THE BEGINNING AT THE LAS VIRGINES RD ENTRANCE>
GREAT EASY TRAILS, UP AND DOWNS, LITTLE WATER HERE AND THEIR, ONCE YOU GET A LITTLE MORE IN TO THE DECOR , IT STOPPES BEING A JOKE AND GETS REALLY CLIMBY !
MAJOR ROCKS MAJOR UPHILL WITH TECKNICAL DOWNHILL, YOU WILL CROSS A RANCH, STICK TO THE REGULAR TRAIL, IT WILL TAKE YOU TO MORE UPHILL AND DESCENT THAT IS QUIT TECHNICAL.
THE PATH SEEMS TO GO ON FOR AGES AND ALMOST NEVER ENDS, YOU GO UP AND UP AND UP WITH STILL ALWAYS A FEW TECHNICAL DOWHILL MOMENTS !
I MYSELF WENT TO HIGHEST I COULD, wich was pretty high ! gorgeous view !
i then decided to go back down the same way i came and stopped at the ranch I mentionned earlier ! Do not do that ! continue the way you originaly started !good luck !

Recommended Route:
FROM THE SANFERNANDO VALLEY ( SHERMAN OAKS FOR ME)
TAKE 101 TOWARDS VENTURA, TAKE EXIT LAS VIRGINES ROAD, MAKE A WRIGHT AND CONTINUE, THE ROAD WILL WIND A LITTLE, CONTINUE ALL AWAY STRAIGHT UNTIL THE DEAD END, THE WILL BE THE ENTRANCE TO THE LAS VIRGINES CANYON PARK ( PROBABLEY HAS A DIFFERENT NAME )

Summary:
I've only ridden it about 3 times.I am a beginner and it is very cool place to ride out. From the(Vanowen entrance), el scorpion trail is very challenging. There are a lot of friendly people on the trails and even saw a few coyotes out and about. Very cool!









Recommended Route:
My route:(from the victory entrance) the De anza trail - ahmanson ranch trail- m.weisbrook trail-laskey mesa - get back on the de anza trail(east)to get back to victory trailhead.
