Whitehorse Lollipop – Intermediate

Intermediate, 5.25 mi, 1000′ gain

Fit beginners can complete this hike, but it will certainly get their blood pumping. This is not a conditioning hike, it’s a social hike. We’ll be stopping at various points to let people catch up and to make sure they make any turns.

We’ll start by climbing the Triunfo Canyon trail for 1.25 miles, where we’ll hit a plateau.We’ll stop there and regroup, taking in the views. Then we’ll continue onto the Los Robles trail for another 1.25 miles, at which point we’ll come to a junction heading down.

We’ll head down and then up, the Whitehorse Canyon trail for 1 mile, then make a left onto the Conejo Crest Trail. We’ll follow that trail for 3/4 mile to a set of stairs and a bench. There, we’ll have a snack and beverage share ( https://www.meetup.com/Hiking-Plus/messages/boards/thread/50879772 ) social event for 30 – 60 minutes before heading down the last mile back to our cars.

Returning, we’ll go down the Brookview trail for 0.2 miles, making a left when we can, going about 100 feet before turning right at a dead end, and taking the Triunfo Canyon trail back down the way we came.
