We will start (early to beat the heat) our hike near the beginning of Regal Oak Ct. on the lower Rosewood Trail, a dirt trail heading up a shaded ravine at the base of the mountains, and continue to the usual Rosewood trail. Rosewood trail presents a clear view over the 101 Freeway carving up the Conejo Valley. This is a preview of the panorama to come at Angel Vista, and the view grows larger as you hike higher up the mountain. At the top, the picnic table at Angel Vista offers one of the magnificent panoramic viewpoints in the Santa Monica Mountains in a coastal area including the Boney Mountains, Sandstone Peak and the rocky crown of Santa Monicas with Conejo Valley, the Oxnard Plains and (on a clear day) a couple of the Channel Islands.
This hike is about 5 miles with an elevation gain/loss approximately 900’.
Directions: From the 101 Freeway take Ventu Park Rd. south, turn right on Lynn Rd. and left on Regal Oak.
