About this Coffee
- Heading to the hike from Los Angeles may include multiple directions; however, consider taking the CA-101 North / Hollywood Freeway towards the 170 North. Merge onto the CA-5 North towards Sacramento and take the exit for CA-118 West. You'll stay on the 118 West for approximately 11 miles. Take exit 32 for Rocky Peak Road and once you hit the overpass, the Rocky Peak Trailhead will be on your right. If parking isn't available directly in front of the trailhead, you can cross over the overpass and park your car on the shoulder of Santa Susana Pass Road.
- NOTE: be aware of the weather during hotter months as there is very limited shade along this trail and the temperatures could be extreme in summer.
- Begin your hike at the green road gate located at the base of Rocky Peak Road and ascend the paved trail on the other side of the gate.
- As you head up, you'll approach multiple intersections, but be sure to always stay on the widest trail (Rocky Peak Road) the entire way.
- Approximately 0.7 miles ahead, you'll pass a few caves on your way towards the next intersection with Hummingbird Trail and Rocky Peak Road.
- Veer right at the large trail marker column for "Hummingbird Trail".
- After passing the trail marker for Hummingbird Trail, you'll have another 1.7 miles before reaching the intersection for Rocky Peak.
- Along the way, you'll pass through a minor canyon surrounded by more impressive sandstone rock formations before heading uphill again.
- When you reach the top of the trail, it will plateau near three large boulders on your right-hand side and an intersecting trail leading east.
- Take a right along the narrow trail passing the concrete foundation (it'll be on your right hand side) and the summit for Rocky Peak will be directly ahead.
- Elevation at the summit: 2,717 feet
