Mentryville is the site of California's first commercial oil well.  It is now a ghost town, with abandoned drilling equipment, a mansion that belonged to the owner, and housing for what was over 100 families during its 19th century boomtimes.  It's also been used for filming on such productions as X-Files, The Color Purple, Murder She Wrote and Big Love.  The hike provides views of the artifacts, as well as great views of the surrounding Santa Susana Mountains.  6.8 miles, approximately 2.5 hours, moderate difficulty.
