It's an awesome spot to be, but don't head up without the owner's permission.

My family and I were up for a little round up with the owner and his family, so I got to enjoy the sights for a bit.

The people here bitching about the No Trespassing signs are probably the same type who carve their names into the trees. People with zero respect for the neighborhood, or the Trees themselves. These trees are historical and go back to the late 1800's. The signage is due to the youngsters and those without respect. If you look respectful and are polite to the neighbors, they do not call on you. just hiked this yesterday. If you pack it in, pack it back out. Don't spray paint or carve into the tree's. Grow up and act like an adult.

Love hiking to Two Trees. Just be sure to be quiet when you start and are going behind the houses. The police can ticket your for trespassing.

The trail is narrow and a bit hard, also beware, it is a private property

The trail is a hard one and if you take the back way through arroyo verde park, its pretty strenuous. Other than that, had a lot of fun with the friends I went with and the hike was fantastic.

the trail that All Trails shows is "illegal" and you'll be fined if you get caught on it! but if you're rebellious like me and don't care what the trespassing signs say and just want to enjoy the beautiful view that the dumb landowners don't want you to enjoy, go for it! I did and it was completely worth it. the tree on top is graffitied, but for a dead tree it's pretty cool in an artsy way. Also, the tree has a swing on it, you could sit there and swing for hours.

It's a cool trail, the version ALLTRAILS shows you used to be open. The landowners decided not to allow this after some locals had a bonfire and left all their garbage (including the burned wood). HOWEVER, 2 trees is accessible via arroyo verde park, it's much longer but doable. You will be fined if you attempt the normal two trees trail, in daylight. Any questions email me at jpruiz113@gmail.com

Yes, see comments below. This trail should be removed from the list. It was a waste of a trip to get to the trail and realize (after seeing the signage) that it wasn't ok to hike there... at first I wondered if the signs were defunct, having been graffitied all over and looking really rusted and old, but I was too nervous to continue. Please remove!

Do not do this hike. You will be fined. A few a holes who wanted to leave trash and light fires ruined it for the rest of us. Sorry.

Grew up in Ventura. I've been up this trail many times in 40 years. Great hike, but now the a-hole landowners are using law enforcement to fine people. It should be open space.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs.
Blocking out the scenery. Breaking my mind.
Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?

And the sign says, "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
So I jumped on fence and I yelled at the house,
"Hey! What gives you the right... To put up a fence to keep me out,
"Or to keep Mother Nature in?
"If God was here, He'd tell it to your face. 'Man, you're some kind of sinner.'"

This path has been closed to the public for over ten years after a long time as one of Ventura's most popular hikes. The property owners closed this trail to the public shortly after the failure of Measure A in 2002 which was a plan to develop the hillside with tracks of real estate development. The family that owned the large parcel of land that includes Two Trees then closed this trail for public use and has been issuing fines since. There are great local alternatives at the Arroyo Verde Park and Grant Park, both of which close at sunset.
