We went on hike around noon on Friday. Temperature was 68 it was a perfect weather for hiking. We saw a couple of hikers and mountain bikers and that was it. We enjoyed wild flowers along the trail. One of the flowers has pleasant smell with light yellow.

Nice loop

My favorite trial to do in the spring time where it’s lush and green. Its a nice and beautiful stroll to do with a group of friends to catch up on life and also get a quick workout in.

Fun little trail. Spring time is the best time to hike this trail, the hills are green and it's not too hot.
Saw a rattle snake right next to the trail so be careful where you step.

After a good rain, the hills are green and beautiful. I love the switchback trail uphill that offers some shade. The open space and views of the meadow are great on the other side. We had a group dog hike (www.connectingcanines.com) and everyone loved it. The end of the hike down along a narrow trial behind the houses offers some charm as well. To me, it’s a great length without being too little or too much for the average hiker.

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.

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.
