Wood Ranch and Lang Ranch Areas

This area lies between the Wood Ranch area of Simi Valley to the north, the Lang Ranch area of Thousand Oaks to the west, and the Cheeseboro Canyon area to the south-east. There are some nice single tracks although it is mostly fire roads, and it connects to Palo Comado and Cheeseboro Canyons through China Flats. It is not nearly as nice as Cheeseboro, but it is worth riding every few months to get some variety, and to remind you how much better Cheeseboro really is. In the summer this area is stinking hot and there is no shade. (We have not completely mapped out the trails in this area, and due to the lack of signs, we do not know the names of most of the trails.)

View from the south. Albertson Fire Road is in the foreground and Lang Ranch is at the left. Wood Ranch is out of view behind the hills.

 Directions: There are two major trailheads.
