HORSE FRIENDLY OLD AGOURA

You can tell that Old Agoura is a Horse Community
with this Reminder: Whoa Down!



Residents are asked to drive slowly and give Big Bertha some room. Even going the speed-limit may be going too fast for some horse folks. there is a bridle easement and horses are pedestrians and they have the right of way. So when residents see these signs, they are reminded "Horses present, Please slow down"

HISTORY

Known originally as the Agourre Ranch, it later was known as the Agoura Ranch. After William Randolph Hearst purchased the property in the 1920's, it was known as the Hearst Ranch. Hearst then leased the property to the Russell family for cattle raising. In 1943, B.B. Albertson purchased the 30,000 acre property from Hearst. A portion of the Albertson Ranch was later acquired by the State of California and is being preserved for park land.

DIRECTIONS: From Los Angeles, take the 101 Freeway North past the City of Calabasas. Exit at Chesebro Road and turn right. Follow Chesebro Road north until you see the entrance to the Chesebro Canyon Park. After parking, take the hiking trail that heads east from the parking area. After a short walk, you will see a road heading to the south (right). Take that and you will be on the old Agoura Ranch range.
