Perfect stroll along a stream. Great shade in the late afternoon with wonderful breezes. Saw to professional photographers at the trail head - tells how pretty this area is.

This is one of my favorite places to ride. There is an Equestrian Center with two large riding arenas and a round pen. The trails are well maintained and are fairly easy for all horses and riders, lots of water Crossings also.

Awesome place to go with trails everyone can love. If you want an easy walk in nature there is a trail. If you want an intense mountain hike they have that too. Amazing place an everyone that goes there is extremely friendly.

Didn't get a chance to walk down to the stream but it looked pretty cool! Pretty long 2hr walk at a steady pace.

Trail run/hike. Temp was 66, sunny, and dry. Read some reviews before heading out. I ended up taking the fork to the right and it was at a good incline. Nice vista view with a bench about a mile up. I wanted to do the loop, but did not wear proper footwear - wore regular running shoes and it was somewhat "slippery" on the sand/dirt trail - didn't have good traction. It was an issue going back down.
If you go straight on the fork towards hawk canyon trail, it appears to be mostly flat, as you can see it as you hike up western plateau.
There are horseback riders on this trail, along with mountain bikers and hikers. I passed several families and I was surprised I did not see more people due to it being a Saturday.
Overall good trail run/hike. It would be nice to note how long the trail is on the signs.

I like this trail. Very close to Camarillo, so I can get to it quick. It has very easy sections and some more challenging, but it has a lot of options. Good parking. Not overly crowded like Wildwood can get. Plus it has an old car stuck in a creek that will keep you wondering just how it got there.

This is a great trail if you don't have enough time to make it out of the city. This trail can be take two seperate ways. One is much harder than the other. When the trail slpits if you want a more strenous hike stay left through the canyon. This will take you past the water treatment plant and a couple of creek crossings. It is very secluded through here and very beautiful. Just past the treatment plant you will start to accend rapidly switching back often, but once on the top you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Santa Rosa Valley. Then its just a leisurly walk back to the parking lot.. If you want a more peaceful walk just take a right at the fork and your on your way! Remember to bring water. It can get very hot.
