CONEJO VALLEY BOTANIC GARDEN
Between The Oaks Mall and the mountains and the freeway and the green way, lies one of the hidden gems of the Conejo Valley. The Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is 33-acres of natural terrain encircled by the city of Thousand Oaks. From the sweeping vistas at the peak of the Garden through fifteen unique, hillside specialty gardens, and onto the hiking trail along the riparian steam, the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is a destination not to be missed.
We’ll cover all the trails that this small park offers. It’s perfect for beginners on up and it’s one of the shadier areas to hike in now that the weather is so hot.
