The Lady is not what she seems


Ladyface Mountain, one of Agoura Hills’ defining geographic features, climbs for 2,031 feet above sea level and can be seen from miles away. Legend has it that the indigenous Chumash Indians sat high atop the peak of the mountain to keep a lookout on the entire valley, and that they named the mountain “Ladyface” because of the topography of its ridge, which appears to be a lady looking into the skies while awaiting the return of her lover. In the early 1900’s, the mountain’s base became a stop for travelers along the Camino Real, offering water from natural springs. Today, the mountain provides a beautiful backdrop for the Ladyface patio, and is a popular hiking trail for locals and visitors alike.
