Getting There

The views from the ridge are very nice so it is worth the climb. The trail could be done in warmer sunny weather. Attempt the hike in the morning hours as the ridge blocks the sun for much of the climb. The ridge top has limited shade although the single track used to avoid the steep trail to an adjoining peak is well shaded. A definite workout but a trail well worth doing.

Street parking

From the 101 take Westlake Blvd north to Lang Ranch Parkway. Trail head is on the south side of Lang Ranch Parkway (right) before Land Ranch Neighborhood Park. Park on the street.

good trail. first mile or so it just going up, afterwards it's pretty steady. also first mile your views are residential you have to go all the way in, to appreciate nature. Will definitely do it again.

Fine trail. Nothing special. A lot of gnats and most of your views are residential until the tail end of the hike.

RunningGreat!

Super steep climbs with technical and rocky sections make this a challenging loop in Thousand Oaks. Amazing views and fun singletracks make this adventure well worth it. Oh yes, you also have to climb a rain gutter. Lots of fun running with friends on dirt.

Running

Tough and strenuous but a great adventure through Lang Ranch, Oak Park, China Flat (Dead Cow) and Cheeseboro Canyon along the Conejo Open Space in Thousand Oaks. Steep from the get go. This one has a little bit of everything with technical and rocky terrains, loose gravel, very steep climbs, a little scrambling and even climbing a rain gutter with a little street running after. Breathtaking views.

Most of the incline is the first half of the hike. I had seen cool pics of rock formations but the trail didn't go to any of them. Great views.

Solid cardio workout. I took the fork and went up and down the steep hill. Would not advise if you do not have good traction, seriously. If you are a bit shakey on steep downhill, poles would help.

More rocky and steep in some places. Off the typical crowed trails in Thousand Oaks. Recommend.

Nice views, but very hot with no shade. Harvester ants all along the trail including some big swarms around the anthills. Lots of lizards and jackrabbits.

This hike is stunning, but be careful on hot days in summertime of harvester ants! We saw several colonies and I got bit/stung by a few.
