This event will be for beginners on up. We’ll be hiking the Pentachaeta Trail in Triunfo Creek Park. At first we will follow the creek and return to the cars. Then, those that want more can continue up to the reservoir and to the peak overlooking it.
Located in the Santa Monica Mountains in the rural Agoura-Westlake area of Triunfo Canyon, 600-acre Triunfo Creek Park provides deep oak woodland, native grasslands and blankets of wildflowers in the springtime. The main feature of the park, the Pentachaeta Trail, is named after the Pentachaeta lyonii, a federally-listed endangered flower found in the park. The yellow, daisy-like flower is found only in Southern California, and blooms between April and June.
