Over the break, I hiked Simi Peak via China Flats trail. I started the hike from the trailhead at King James Court and Lindero Canyon Rd. "Map My Hike" said the hike was about 6 miles round trip and ~1100 ft elevation gain. It was a beautiful day, crystal clear, in the low 80's with gentle breezes. Gotta love LA :)

We made it!
At the top, there is a journal that you can sign in. It's been there since May 2011. I signed a little something in the book. It was fun to read through the fellow hiker's entries.
We took a slightly different route back down:
Wish you were here! :)
