A beautiful and easy hike. May come here again and again. It’s such a pleasure to have a walk up the hills and enjoy the views.

This was a nice trail and also a plus that it is dog friendly. It is a quick loop and fun to do if you want to get a quick hike in.

The burnt trees still remains, Dripping Cave trail closed. Winter time is good for me to hike this area because of the cool weather.

Everything was blocked couldn’t get anywhere.

Great kid friendly hike. This is one of those hikes I like to do when I don't have a lot of time but still want to get out of the house and be with nature.

Easy and relaxing loved it

the hike from the bottom to the car wreck in the nice. when u get the the actual car wreck u just kinda sit there and wrack it brain on how on earth the car got there in the first place. lots of graffiti, random bullet holes in the sides of the car. pretty much just the shell of the car and the breaks. u can either continue to go up and around. if u go up be prepared to climb. it is direct sun so in the summer the sun beats down on u and makes it hard to climb. very pretty juke. some switch backs but over all fairly easy going up to the car. if u pass the car and continue to climb it gets difficult.

Relaxed walk. Check the tide so you get there around low tide to take advantage of the tide pools.

Did Wood Canyon to Mathis and back this week. Spotted 4 deer; bobcat; great blue heron; nice to see new growth in fire scar area

Nice, brisk walk around the loop. Not much around and it's pretty much dead vegetation most of the year but there are some birds. It's ok for begginers or just a power walk.

This is a great place for beginners, seasoned hikers, runners and bikers or families who just want to take a stroll. There is a dirt path that runs parallel to the concrete road for quite a few miles which allows you to choose your surface. That part of the trail is relatively flat so great for all ages biking, strollers or wheel chairs. If you want something more rugged there are side trails with good elevation climbs and rougher terrain. There are portable toilets at the trail head as well as a couple miles out on the path. This place has a little something for everybody. We came across the Park Rangers a few times which leads me to believe this is a relatively safe and well maintained area. Unfortunately, they do not allow dogs on the trial and there is a $3 fee for parking in their lot. There is limited street parking.

Nice little quick walk if you’re looking to stretch your legs and see a little bit of a view. I try to do this loop at least once a week.

...nowhere to go...trail blocked...only walked about 1/2 mile...

Even with the dripping cave trail being closed, you have so many other trails to help that other .4 miles you are missing. Me and a friend ended up getting even more miles in which is even better! Best time to hike in this area is definitely during fall times. The leaves were so crunchy to walk around and I loved it.

I loved this trail, but it is not moderate. There are one or two easy sections and the majority of the trail is moderate. But, Camarillo Trail is rated difficult, this is seen on the trail maps that are at the trail. So, how is the trail? Well most of it is double track with probably around 30-40% single track. It has a mix of smooth to rock and technical trails. This means that if you are a beginner to moderate skill level you can ride the trail and walk down and up the parts that you can't. In short, I really enjoyed this trail and I will definitely come back to help me improve until I can clean the whole trail.

Super fun trail, lots of random ways to go and not much structure, so if you like it that way this will be cool for you.

not bad, nothing to brag about. great for families nice quick brisk walk suitable for all ages. nice and peaceful just hearing the nature around you.

Peaceful and easy beach stroll!

Nice little lunch time hike. I like going to the right for one full loop, then going back up the left side until it gets down to the lowest part then turn around again to get 3 uphill portions. Only way to get the heart rate up in my opinion.

fun hike with plenty of wildlife

Great hike! It took me about 1.5 hours to do the 4.8 mile loop. I started at 2:30pm on a Thursday and I only saw two other people on the trail. Views from the higher elevations are gorgeous. I was able to see all the way to DTLA. Trails are well marked and the ranger has maps available.

Beautiful & peaceful! And lunch @ the date shake shake a tasty bonus!

Is a nice hike, but you need to watch for bikers

This trail is one of my favorite local spots.

Pretty area, rather empty on weekday mornings, and lots of water. Biggest thing to note is that it is CONFUSING with lots of little trails branching off all over. If you track/record on this app though, you can see when you’re getting turned around. Or don’t track it and test your wayfinding skills (if you don’t need to be anywhere anytime soon)!

Well-kept trail, but rather boring. Open plains, an uninspiring view to the east of buildings and and freeway.
