This is meeting in the same area (Los Robles Open Space) as Laurie’s longer hike, but in a different parking area (the end of Greeenmeadow Avenue). This hike is much shorter (5 miles) and slower, for those of you who want a more leisurely pace.
Oak Creek Canyon Trail is a rather special trail in Los Robles Open Space that is designed for the blind as well as the sighted and is shaded by a canopy of oaks.
We will start at Oak Creek Canyon and proceed to a connector trail a short distance until we meet a junction with Los Robles Trail East. Along this trail, you’ll travel through a couple of very nice oak groves, and get some great views throughout the Los Robles Trail East. We will turn around when we hit 2 1/2 miles.
This hike will be a five-mile In/Out with about a 900’ elevation gain/loss.
Direction: From the 101 freeway, Exit Moorpark and drive to the south end of Moorpark Rd, turn right on Greenmeadow Ave., and go about a quarter mile to the parking lot. NOTE: you can not reach the parking lot from any other direction regardless of what your GPS may tell you.

The hike host is a volunteer and not responsible for the group. Safety should be a priority for everyone in the group. Please treat this meet-up as hiking with a group of friends.

If you are able to proceed, it is expected that you will maintain line of sight with other members of the group at all times and help to promote the group’s safety and fitness goals.
Outdoor sports and other events we plan can be inherently dangerous and accidents may happen. By participating in any posted event, you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. The Weekday Trailblazers Meetup Group and its organizers are not trained leaders and we do not confirm the qualifications of any of its members to lead or participate in trips. All participants take full responsibility for their own actions.
If you choose to sign up for this or any Weekday Trailblazers Meetup event, you are releasing the Weekday Trailblazers Meetup Group, its organizers, and sponsors from all liability in case of possible injuries. Your personal safety depends on your own judgment and experience. You agree that you can navigate back to your transportation by yourself, and agree to do so if you fall behind and lose track of the main body of hikers.
