Located in the picturesque hills above Simi Valley, the Hummingbird Trail takes you through a gorgeous canyon filled with lush greenery, stunning rock formations, and panoramic views that will leave you breathless.

Now, we know what you're thinking: "A hidden cave and swing? That sounds too good to be true!" But we promise you, it's real! The cave is nestled in a small canyon off the main trail, and it's a bit of a scramble to get there, but once you reach it, you'll be rewarded with a refreshing oasis.

And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, there's also a super cool secret swing just outside the cave entrance. The swing is made from a repurposed surfboard and hangs from a tree branch, allowing you to soar over the canyon while taking in the awe-inspiring views.


But wait, is this hike suitable for kids, you ask? You betcha! While the Hummingbird Trail is rated moderate to difficult due to some steep sections and loose terrain, it's totally doable for older kids who are up for a little adventure. And trust us, they'll love exploring the cave, and swinging like a monkey on the secret swing.

So, if you're ready for an unforgettable day of hiking, and swinging, grab your fam, pack some snacks, and head to the Hummingbird Trail! It's about a 3-mile round-trip hike that should take 2-3 hours, depending on your pace. Just don't forget to wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring plenty of water, and, of course, your sense of adventure!

Psst! One more thing, this is a hidden gem, so please make sure to take your trash with you and leave the area better than you found it.
