Hike Description:
Conejo Canyons Trailhead to the Western Plateau Trail to the Plateau Rim Trail. We reconnect with the Western Plateau Trail, take it to the Hawk Canyon Trail and take the Western Plateau Trail back to our cars.

To get there get off of the 101 freeway take the Rancho Conejo Blvd exit. Take Rancho north to the end, turn left on Conejo Center Drive. There is parking area next to the Conejo Canyons Trailhead but I do not trust that it won’t get locked while we return in the evening, so park on the street.
When turning left, park on the street near the Rancho/Conejo Dr intersection in front of the Utilities/CNG Filling Station place.

Please follow the guidelines under the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
