Ride the Two Winds (Dos Vientos) – Gentler Friendly

Come join us to see a section of the Dos Vientos Open Space that includes 5 different colors of Sticky Monkey Flower.

This hike will loop around the periphery of Dos Vientos Open Space, passing Twin Ponds, overlooking Potrero Road and the Oxnard Plain with the Channel Islands in the background. We will cross 2 streets along the way.

This hike is about 6.0 miles with about 800 feet of elevation gain.

Pace: This is a gentler friendly hike. We will go at a slightly slower pace than the Intermediate Trailblazer Hikes, and we will finish in about 2-2.5 hours. Faster hikers are welcome to join us so long as they are willing to hike at the slower pace of the group or wait at the forks on the trail. There are many confusing side trails in Dos Vientos so I ask that everyone plan to stay in contact with the group and not lose sight of those in front of you.

Please note this trail is very exposed (no shade) and there is no water along the way.

DIRECTIONS: From the 101 Freeway in Newbury Park, exit at Borchard Road. Drive 3.4 miles and turn into the Dos Vientos Community Park on the right, just after Via Ricardo (and before Via Las Brisas). Meet by the tennis courts to the left.
If you are coming from the NW, exit Wendy and turn left on Wendy and then a right on Borchard to Dos Vientos Community Park.

Restrictions apply for your safety and ours:
Don’t show up unless you’re on the “Attending” list
Unregistered or waitlisted will be turned away
No “Plus Ones” on this hike
Plan on completing the entire hike or please find an alternative hike that better suits your hiking level.

All participants must be 18 or older, or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
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 become fatigued and unable to continue the hike, it is expected you will advise the hike host of this and return to our starting point on your own. 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.
