Great trail! Great view for sunsets!

Oak Creek Canyon is an excellent access to the Los Robles Open Space and the Los Robles Trail. The beginning of the hike goes through a very nice shady area with picnic facilities and interpretive signs. Views along the hike are excellent. The Ceanothus was in bloom (February) with white flowering bushes mixed into the hillsides. The climb to a bench on the vista loop is well worth the effort. The trail has some steep stretches but nothing too onerous. Footing can be tricky as the trail in many areas climbs over sandstone. The sandstone can develop a thin layer of sand which hinders traction. Shoes with lug sole are recommended. Bicyclists can go way too fast on sections with limited visibility creating a hazard especially for small children and dogs.

It's a good trail and I hike it every morning with my dog.

Really liked it. It was easy to hike and find the directions.

I liked this trail so much ! It was the perfect hike for a beginner, the views were amazing, it was kind of funny at the end it ends in a housing tract! And we had to walk up a few city streets to get back to our car. My favorite hike so far !!

Good trail. Only disappointment was that the loop did not end at start point. You actually exit from Los Padres trail onto Moorpark Road by Canejo Players Theater. Easy 3.3 mile hike. Highly recommend the Vista Point Loop to the benches for the great view of Thousand Oaks.

Great area to hike. Hiked from Oak Creek Canyon to the bench on Vista Loop. Great view from the bench. Long shady stretches help the climb. There's an oak woodland at the furthest west trail head on Greenmeadow. It's the trail head with marked parking spaces. Great place for a picnic after a hike. Not many hikers on the trail and it was a really good day for hiking. A serious problem is bicyclists going way too fast for conditions. There are blind curves and they come around the curves way too fast and out of control. Still rate this a 5 but I would be wary of taking small children on the climbing portions of the trail because of the bikes. There is a closed section of trail marked as accessible on AllTrails between the Los Robles and Vista Loop trails. It's a very steep section and its being seriously eroded.

We think its amazing because we got engaged on this hike on the bench, overlooking the mountains! Great trail to have in your neighborhood!

This trail is steep in the beginning but is well worth the exertion with the amazing views at the top.
