- To preserve the unique natural and cultural features of Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park, please observe the following:
- Stay on safe paths when hiking. You are more likely to encounter poison oak, rattlesnakes, and ticks when you venture onto untrodden areas.
- The rustiest horseshoe to the barest twig is now part of this California State Park. Report any suspicious activity, including the removal or disturbance of our precious resources.
- Make sure you know what your physical limits are. There are high summer temperatures and rugged terrain. Water should always be carried with you.
- Don’t hike alone. Use the “buddy” system. Tell a friend or family member of your plans. Let them know when you plan to return.
