Join us in continuing to build a new trail from the new Westlake Village YMCA to the Saddle Pass Trail!
This is one of the two main yearly events in Thousand Oaks for improving our trail system and brings together a number of open space advocacy groups. We'll be joining the COSCA rangers, Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council, hikers from various Meetup groups and others to work on this new trail.
We use the Conejo Open Space trails regularly, so this is our chance to give back to the community while expanding our trail opportunities!
At noon, following the morning of trail-building, workers will be treated to a thank-you lunch while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow trail enthusiasts! The COSCA rangers will be grilling up burgers, dogs and vegi selections for the volunteers - always a delicious event!
Wear protective clothing (long-legged pants, long-sleeved shirts, sunglasses), sturdy shoes, gloves, hat and sunscreen.
No experience necessary. Tools and instructions on how to use them safely and effectively will be provided. Must be 18+ years of age. As always when in the open spaces, be aware of poison oak, ticks & rattlesnakes. Everyone works at their own comfort level.
Follow instructions of park rangers and trail crew leaders at all times.
Directions: From the 101 Freeway in Westlake Village, exit at Lindero Canyon Road and head north. After 0.8 miles, turn left onto Thousand Oaks Blvd. Pull into the YMCA on the right. Meet at the west end of the baseball fields.
