A Guide to Hiking Grimes Canyon

July 14, 2017

I first spotted Grimes Canyon when browsing around on Instagram. It is such a unique spot and when I realized it was just outside of Los Angeles and only a 10-minute hike, I knew I had to make an effort to see it.

 

Where To Go

Google Maps

Grimes Canyon is located in Ventura County. You will wind your way along Grimes Canyon Road until you come to this spot:

 

8884 Grimes Canyon Road

Moorpark, CA 93021

 

From here you’ll see an area where you can pull off beside the road and park. If you are worried about getting a ticket, don’t be. An officer actually did stop and ask me what I was doing. I simply explained I wanted to hike to the top of the hill for a photo. He made a joke about how hot it was that day and then went on about his way.

 

 

Tips for the Hike

  • The hike is very short, and shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to get to the top.
  • It is quite steep. You’ll see a pathway where others have started the hike, however as you continue the path becomes less clear. Basically just keep going up until you can see the curve of the road.

 

 

  • Wear long pants because the brush will scratch you, and there are little cacti that you may bump into.
  • I’d also recommend wearing shoes you’re okay with getting dirty because the ground is sandy and not very firm. When I finished I had a shoeful of sand and dirt to dump out.

 

 

 

And that’s it! Pick a spot at the top to take your photos, and then carefully make your way back down.

    Such a beautiful view! I can’t believe its only a 10 minute hike – will have to stop by if I end up in the LA area for work.

  • This summer has been all kinds of crazy. I didn't exactly plan it this way, but I have been road tripping almost all summer long. It's been a mixture of feeling drained and craving a stable bed, to being mesmerized by America's beauty and never wanting my trip to end. 💜
