The hike meanders thru oak trees and winding trails, around several rock formations approx 7.8 MILES round-trip past Eagle Rock. 800 Ft elevation gain.

GREAT for advanced beginners. We'll stop on top of Eagle rock for at least a half hour to rest / relax / snack and check out a couple small caves.

Should take AROUND 4 1/2 hours AT A RELAXED PACE.

      Great hike again! Absolutely loved the guitar playing and the singing. So, bummed to have missed the festivities at froggies! I turned right instead of left leaving the park site after dropping Armond off at his car. Before i knew it, I was heading to Thousand Oakes! Good Grief ! Then , when i figured it all out and got back onto PCH, the traffic made it so difficult to find the restaurant . Anyhow, thanks again for the great workout and good company!

    Great hike, the weather really cooperated after last week (order has been restored to the universe) and I managed to get through dinner at Froggies with only a few assorted projectiles launched in my general direction.

    I was not able to find parking in the street, was crazy busy too many people! So I went to Corral Canyon and hiked all the way to the summit, the view from the top was amazing.

      Rimona, i will be in the valley a couple of hours earlier and staying down there a couple of hours after the hike. the carpool probably won't work out for me from valencia. but i might be able to ride with some one from the valley.
