This is the slower hike for Tuesday, there will be a faster hike posted as well. This hike is in Camarillo at Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa Regional Park. We will start at the parking area in Hill Canyon, cross the bridge over the runoff creek, and stroll a mile before turning onto the fire road up the Western Plateau. We will go straight at the crest of the fire road and then turn on the Plateau Rim loop and then return down the Hawk Canyon Trail. The Hawk Canyon Trail connects to Western Plateau Trail back to the parking lot. We will take a few breaks along the way to wait for everyone to catch up. This is approximately 6 miles with an elevation gain of approximately 1000 feet. Last time I was there the trail was a bit overgrown so wear long pants and check for ticks after the hike.
From Moorpark Road in the Santa Rosa Valley, drive west on Santa Rosa Road for 3.7 miles, turn left (south) on Hill Canyon Road for about 0.6 miles to the parking lot.
From the 101 Freeway in Camarillo, take exit 52 onto Santa Rosa Road and drive northeast. After 5 miles, turn right onto Hill Canyon Road for about 0.6 miles to the parking lot.
