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. The all-access trail is shaded by a canopy of oaks, while the loop trail spends more time in the chaparral.
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 West (AKA “Space Mountain”). “Space Mountain” gets its name from the switchbacks. You’ll travel through a couple of very nice oak groves, and get some great views throughout in the Robles Open Space. Then, we will turn around right before a steep downhill section with sharp switchbacks (prior to where the trail crosses a private road) and head back to our cars.
This hike will be about 5-6 miles In/Out with approximately 1000’ elevation gain/loss.
Direction: From the 101 freeway, drive to the south end of Moorpark Rd, turn right on Greenmeadow Ave., and go a half mile to the parking lot.
Please review our guidelines to participate in our hikes.
