One of the unique characteristics of Southern California is you can sit in five lanes of traffic on a local freeway one minute and 10 minutes later, lose yourself in some of the most spectacular natural splendor found anywhere in the world. Such is the case with Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park, which towers over the vast residential and commercial development in the San Fernando Valley.
Overview of the Park
Located in Los Angeles County, Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park sits where the Simi Hills merge with the majestic Santa Susana Mountains. As the western section of the Transverse Range, the historic park includes tall, narrow ridges and very deep canyons richly full of chaparral and trees native to the Mediterranean climate of Southern California. Panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness and bustling neighborhoods of San Fernando Valley captivate park visitors.Details
