This is a pleasant hike along Mountclef Ridge in Wildwood Park. The hike provides lovely views of the Santa Rosa Valley to the Santa Susana and Topatopa Mountains, as well as the Conejo Valley to the Santa Monica Mountains. There is little shade along the trail, and the vegetation is mostly scrub brush. Note that once you reach the end of the Santa Rosa Trail and start heading down a service road into a housing development, route finding gets a little confusing. You head down the service road, turn right on the unmarked Lower Butte trail, the left on Wildwood avenue, then right on the jogging path that takes you back to Avenida De Los Arboles.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hike and enjoyed the views. Markings were great in some areas and I was glad we had gps in others. The last leg through a suburban neighborhood was not my favorite part.

Don't let the easy hiking status fool you, on a mountain bike this was a difficult trail. Lots of Rocky climbs and loose footing. There are narrow spots near cactus. Beautiful views!
