Hidden Hills is a city and gated community in the Santa Monica Mountains[6] region of Los Angeles County, California. It is located next to the cities of Los Angeles and Calabasas. The population was 2,107 as of 2022.

History

The earliest inhabitants of the area were Chumash people.[7]

The community was designed and developed in the 1950s by A. E. Hanson, a Southern California landscape architect and planned community developer.[8][9] His earlier projects included Rolling Hills[10] and Palos Verdes Estates, and the 1920s Beverly Hills Harold Lloyd Estate "Greenacres".

Vanity Fair described the city in 2017:

Its absence of sidewalks and streetlights, copious "Horses & children at play" signage, and abundant 2-acre lots surrounded by white three-rail fences, Hidden Hills exudes a certain rough-around-the-edges charm.[11]

Geography

It is a gated residential community with a total area of 1.7 square miles (4.4 km2), all land.

Hidden Hills is in the southern Simi Hills Transverse range near the Santa Monica Mountains on the western edge of San Fernando Valley, near the border with neighboring Ventura County.[12]

Hidden Hills is bordered on the north by the nature reserve and greenbelt of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve, a park with miles of equestrian, hiking, and mountain biking trails. Nearby to the south, is the pioneer Leonis Adobe National Historic Landmark, with gardens and a historical museum. The city lies just north of U.S. Route 101, also called the Ventura Freeway.
