CLOSURE: The park is open but Paradise Falls has been shut down indefinitely as of 5/29. I got lucky and got to check it out on 5/27. There were tons of people and many were diving and swimming (despite signs urging them not to). Apparently, people were also leaving loads of trash and using it as a toilet, prompting authorities to shut it down. Great park with an excellent trail system. I didn't learn this until later but apparently it was home to the Chumash people about 8,000 years ago. Additionally, they filmed various western movies here. TRAIL: Very well-marked and easy to follow. I completed this loop (about 4 miles) that hits Lizard Rock and then Paradise Falls. There are multiple trails that converge so there are various ways to see these sights (the AllTrails app helps). The loop (which is really Mesa Trail to Wildwood Canyon Trail to Teepee Trail) is a great trail that starts off a bit rocky/exposed and later turns into a lovely woodland paradise. Paradise Falls was beautiful but ruined by humans (see above). PARKING: There's a parking lot but availability is limited, particularly during busy times. I had to do a few loops before I found a spot. There were signs for an overflow lot down the road but it would require a bit of a walk. There were also signs urging hikers not to park on the residential streets. BATHROOMS: At the trailhead and at the picnic area near Paradise Falls. TIPS: -Sunblock. You're pretty exposed on most of the trails. -Ample water. -If you want to simplify your parking endeavor, try not to come here during peak times (so aim for morning or later in the afternoon). -The trails were really well-marked but there are multiple ways to reach your destination as well as a few "side quests" so the AllTrails app really helped me follow my chosen trail.

Nice hike. Lots of people on the way out, hey there early to avoid the crowds

Nice wide trail sun easy

Good hike, start on the hardest part first. You will see the switchback hill from the parking lot, start here and finish along the stream. Bring water and start early

Fun loop on a spring day. Brought the dog and kids ages 11, 13, 16. Rocky in places but overall an easy hike. Although the trails are open in Wildwood, the parking lot is closed, so we parked about 1/4 mile down the road in the parking lot for the neighborhood park. Please do not park on the residential streets. Saw some birds: roadrunner, scrub jay, California towhee, mockingbird. Also saw a squirrel in the top of a tree chirping - so cute!

This is open now. Park signs warn to still observe 6 ft and wear masks when passing others but many didn’t. Lots of large family groups, no masks, no 6 ft.

To the top and back. Great exercise and view. Rattle snakes and gorgeous views

Closed due to Covid-19

Seems county has decided to close the trail. China virus over reaction in my opinion. Many still hiking and enjoying the outdoors!

Loved this, wildlife, only muddy bc of recent weather.

Good trail for busy weekends when the main out and back to the waterfall is busy. Eagle rock took some time do find the trail but was well established. I also did the trail reverse the order in the description and loved that as well.

Ended up taking Eagle Scout Trail back. It is much steeper and narrower than any other aspect of the Moonridge Trail. Mossy ground and wet even at noon on a sunny warm day. Would not recommend if out of shape, but definitely not what I would call tough/hard. This is my favorite trail in Wildwood. Some hills, cave, creekside half the trio, cross it couple times, through the woods, waterfalls, little bit of everything. Highly recommend.

Excellent

Started the hike at 2pm. went up Canyon Loop Trail then hooked up with Lizard rock trail and zig zagged down to the water treatment road. Was rocky and steep in some areas but not unmanageable if in “ok” shape. Ended just after 4pm at 3.5 miles. Was great for long distance views of the conejo valley and surrounding areas of Moorpark and Camarillo. Went in Feb so the hills were nice and green with sparse dots of wild flowers: lupin, blue dicks, shooting stars, etc.

A little rocky and steep incline in the first 20 minutes, but all worth it with it’s beautiful vistas.

Took the dog on the hike, he is big and strong. Now, he is napping by the sliding door. Not tough, nice vari, some small hilly areas, covered trails, the falls and cave, little bit of everything the park offers minus lizard rock. Forgot to turn of the recording, only 1:20 minutes at a moderate pace.

Great easy loop. Even with stopping for photo ops and a breather here and there about 40 min.. Somewhat kid friendly depending on your kids ages and abilities. Rocky part of trail is good for a lil challenge. Great views, and you can see the waterfall too.

This hike will take you through several creek crossings (there are boards to walk over) after you hit Paradise Falls. From that point you will start your incline (very doable) to Lizard Rock. There are two benches you can stop at if you need to take a break. After Lizard Rock (which is a awesome spot for pics) it's all downhill from there....The parking lot is very spacious and this area has several trails that are both kid and dog friendly.

Great views and great trails

Very nice trail. Some ankle deep water crossing. Better start on the bridge side.
