Great trail if you are a beginner or just getting back in the saddle mountain biker. Nice mixture of single track and fire roads

Easy hike, moderate to easy trail run. If you like solitude during your outdoor forays, go before dawn or just before dusk because this is a popular local trail.

Parking at the trailhead could be much better if people used common sense and showed consideration for others. Park at an angle, don’t give yourself 4 feet of clearance on each side, if you have a bike carrier on your bumper don’t park near the exit...like I said, please use common sense.

This hike was beautiful but not too challenging. Felt like a little more of a nature walk. Not many steep parts.

The trail had several off shoots that were shaded with large oaks. Great for a morning workout.

Great hike. The hills are green, lots of cacti and beutiful plants. Beware there are plenty of ticks on trail. The up hill is moderate. Dogs must be on leash. There are bikers and horses on the trail. Even got to see a beautiful deer.

So green after the rain and plenty of wildflowers. This is an easy to moderate trail. Dogs are allowed.

The trails are well marked and easy to
Hike with tennis shoes. There are trails that go up into the hills in the sun with no shade, plus trails through the canyons with shade trees. Both are great for picture taking & viewing nature all around
you. I recommend this hike!!

Took the kids out Saturday. Only did 1.9 miles and it was all easy along the stream. Kids loved it. I would really like to come back and go further.

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.

Average trail. Decent hike or jog.

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.
