Summary: Corriganville is a lovely 246 acre park, and one of my favorite places for a morning hike. The interpretive trail meanders down an oak shaded trail on both sides of a small creek, with interpretive signs detailing both nature and the 3500 movies made at this location almost 40 years ago. The slightly longer Loop trail takes you though some of the spectacular sandstone formations. This is a prefect place for an easy hike and picnic with a small child. Recommended!
Trailhead: From Highway 118/Simi Valley Freeway in Simi Valley, exit on Kuehner Drive. Drive 1.1 miles south to Smith Road and turn left. Continue 0.4 miles into Corriganville Park. (Lat:34.263092 Lon:-118.654621)

Great short hike on the weekend. Some minor hills to climb but nothing too hard for people just getting into hiking. I brought 2 friends and a small dog and they loved it. Just be sure that you stick to the "Main" trails as there are a lot of side trails made by locals over the years. Be sure to get there in the early morning or later in the day to avoid the heat of the Cali sun.

This was an amazing view and hike today...My 6yr old and 4mo. old were both equally entertained. Several easy walks and some much more difficult and steep. Something for everyone!!!!! I really liked this area.

Very easy hike. It was perfect for my 3 year old, who was tired by the end and ready to go home and took a nice long nap afterward. Great hike if super short on time and you just want a little outdoor fun or a sweet place to walk your dog.

This is an AWESOME hike for family. We went off the main trails and I highly recommend that - just use the water tower as your landmark because if not for that, we would have gotten really turned around. We took our 9 year old and 2 year old and they both had a blast exploring. We did see some large tracks...not sure what they were but the claws were long. Really beautiful and fun for families. One of our new favs!

Me and my husband took our dogs here one Sunday afternoon. We walked the "Interpretation Trail" we really enjoyed the scenery, the terrain, and the history. We live quite close, so we will definitely come back again and again.

I brought my 6-year-old and 2-year-old on this one ... they (and I) had a ball ! This is a great hike for kids. We saw all sort of wildlife (including a rattler, so be careful), the old movie sets and even a Winnie-the-Pooh style beehive. I will definitely go again.

Nice easy hike with lots of informative signs to read. Great hike for those with kids or those looking for a "park like" stroll. Well groomed trails with a small seasonal stream. Bring a lunch, there are plenty of benches situated under large Oak trees for shade ( trash cans provided).
