Twin Ponds – Dos Vientos Loop – Potluck Picnic

October 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


We’ll start our loop at Dos Vientos Community Park exploring some of the neighborhood trails in the Dos Vientos area of the southwestern Conejo Valley. It provides a great overview of the nearby Dos Vientos residential area, as well as distant vistas including Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, surrounding mountains and open space, a secluded pond, the Pacific coast, and two of the Channel Islands.

Here is a small slide show from previous hikes


The park has lots of picnic tables (including BBQs) where we can have our potluck lunch. Bring food and drink to share — leave everything in car until our return to park.

Trail descriptions are based on previous hikes. Current conditions are unknown until arrival. Expect the unexpected and plan accordingly.
