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.
