Come and Join me on a Quick Paced Evening Workout hike!
I must be honest here. I have not hiked this hike for over a year but have hiked it many times. So it may be partially exploratory in case something has changed since I hiked it.
Note that we are starting at 5pm, we leave on time.
Distance: 6 miles
Elevation Gain: 1400+ft
Difficulty: Intermediate hiker, no beginners please
Water Fountain: No
Parking: Free street parking
Trail: Out and back, may have some uneven footing and possible mud puddles from the past rain.
Weather: Extreme heat, high winds or Rain will cancel this hike
Known Dangers: slip-‘n-fall, poison oak, speedy mountain bikers
Flashlight/headlamp and an extra layer, it can get chilly in there even on a warm day. Bring enough water to stay hydrated, 1-2 liters should be enough and a snack for the breakpoint at the top.
The name of the actual hike area is called Conejo Canyons Trailhead and you can get more details if you look it up on alltrails.com.
Part of the hike we will be doing is called Hawk Canyon.
To get there get off of the 101 freeway Rancho Conejo Blvd ext. Take Rancho north to the end, turn left on Conejo Center Drive. There is a sort of parking area right next to the trailhead but I do not trust that it won’t get locked while we are hiking in the evening, so park on the street.
When turning left, park on the street near the Rancho/Conejo Dr intersection if front of the Utilities/CNG Filling Station place.
