From the Moorpark Freeway (23), exit on Avenida de Los Arboles and go west (a right turn if you are coming from Moorpark). Follow de Los Arboles until it ends at Big Sky Drive. Make a U-turn and the park entrance is on the right side of the road. Drive through the first parking lot and follow the dirt road for about 1 mile until it dead ends into the 2nd parking lot.

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.

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.

I have done almost all of the trails at the park and this one is enjoyable even when it is hot. Lots of shade when walking down by the river. We saw a decent sized rattlesnake right before the falls.

10 billion bugs and ten billion poking plants, if it was maintained it would’ve been great

Came out and hiked this loop with my family. Nice area with tons of trails to explore. Another fun one :) GPS tracks uploaded don't reflect a 3 mile loop based on my experience. We went to the Tee Pee via the Moon Ridge Trail, then back up on the main road for 3.5 miles.

Did this hike in July. Mostly dry plants except in the creek bed. Lots of people and families. Wildwood is rather small so we did this hike with Paradise Falls and Santa Rosa trails as well. Rather hot weather with gorgeous clear skies.

I love this hike!! A good portion of it is parallel to the creek and the painted cave is nothing to write home about, but is worth taking a look at. What makes these trails so wonderful are the spectacular views and the fantastic 70 ft waterfall!

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.

Amazing vistas and completely uncrowded on a Friday in December. We will be back again to try it when the natural grasses are fully grown and flowers are in bloom. The loop sends you through amazingly diverse terrain, despite always keeping you fairly close to the parking lot.
