This is a potluck hike in the Los Robles Open Space. We will do the Oak Creek Canyon-Los Robles-Los Padres Loop among some beautiful oak groves and great views of the Conejo Valley. That will be about 4.5 miles with 900′ total ascent and is rated MEDIUM (see https://www.hikingwithdean.com/hike-rating-guide/)
There are facilities at the trailhead including picnic benches. You can leave the food and drink in car during hike.
Highlights along the way include the “Lily Tomlin” trail and “Sherwood Forest.” (not to be confused with the Sherwood Forest of my Pentachaeta Loop hike)
Group Trivia: We first did this hike in May 2008. Back then, when I was living in Oak Park/Westlake Village, it was the location of our infamous Sundowner Hikes.
Directions to trailhead:
From the 101 freeway exit Moorpark Rd. Drive to the south end of Moorpark Rd, turn right on Greenmeadow Ave., and go a half mile to the parking lot. (Make sure you drive a half mile on Greenmeadow Ave. before parking)
Bring water, snacks, camera, sunscreen
Trail statistics are approximate. For safety purposes always assume they are underestimated. But don’t be disappointed if they are overestimated. Bring more water and snacks than you think you’ll need.
Trail descriptions are based on previous hikes. Current conditions are unknown until arrival. Expect the unexpected and plan accordingly.
