Join me on a conditioning evening hike.
The actual hike is called Palo Comado Shepherd’s Flat Loop on Alltrails.com
There are many intersecting trails at this trailhead of varying lengths, so we need to stick together (I have a story about getting lost in here even after hiking it many times). In the Springtime the wildflowers are gorgeous in here. I don’t think they are blooming just yet for our hike.
Distance: 6.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 1000+
Difficulty: Intermediate due to pace we do not stop, we may take one break halfway through but that is it.
Dogs: Yes, but must be leashed, well mannered and able to keep pace
Water Fountain: No
Parking: Free Street parking
Trail: Lollypop/Loop Trail
Weather: Rain, Wind, Extreme temperatures cancels hike
Known Dangers: Rattlesnakes, slip-‘n-fall, poison oak, mountain lions have been spotted on this trail.
Bring: Extra layer to take on and off as needed, Flashlight/headlamp and a snack for the short break if needed.
Water maybe 2L if you sweat a lot. It is always good to bring more than you need!
Have a mask to take on and off as needed out of respect to other hikers/bikers we pass on the trail and in our group during the pandemic. We need to also continue to practice social distancing ourselves to continue to prevent the spread of Covid.
Directions: From Simi Valley take the 118, to 23 freeway then get off at Los Arboles exit, turn left and take to Westlake Blvd., Drive for a few stoplights, miles and turn left on Kanan Rd and then Left Kanan Road, Drive some more stoplights and left on Sunnycrest Dr. That becomes Double Tree Road, You can also take a left on Double Tree Road as Double Tree and SunnyCrest run into each other.
