Las Llajas Canyon - Simi Valley

Written by Cindy Nunn

Las Llajas Canyon, located at the north end of Simi Valley in the Santa Susana mountains, is probably a misspelling of the Spanish word "Las Llagas," which means, in translation, Canyon of the Wounds. The area is rich in wildlife, including, but not limited to, mountain lions, lizards, snakes, hawks, eagles, coyotes, deer, and even the occassional bear. The Chumash had their villages n this area for hundreds of years until they were displaced by Spanish settlers.
