Cheeseboro Canyon Trail is an easy 4.6-mile hike. Follow an old ranch road along a streambed through a valley oak savannah and coast live oak riparian zone. A picnic area is located 1.6 miles from the parking lot. Near Sulphur Springs, at 3.3 miles, you can smell the odor of rotten eggs. As you pass under the Baleen Wall, the canyon opens up and chaparral slopes replace the savannah. The trail continues to an old sheep corral where you can picnic near the creek bed or watch the sky for birds of prey.

Dogs must be on leash at all times and are allowed only on trails and access roads. Trail closures may be in effect during and following significant rainfall to protect park resources. Trails will be re-opened when dry enough to sustain public use.

Directions: From Agoura Hills, CA, Travel US 101 / Ventura Freeway to Cheesebro Road, which carries you to the entrance to the Canyons. Proceed to parking lot.

Distance: 4.6 miles
