Join us in starting to build a new trail from the new Westlake Village YMCA to the Saddle Pass Trail, the first segment of 2.5 miles of new trail!

This is a bonus trailwork day because it is in addition to our regular Spring Trailwork Day on June 16th. (Note that this workday is on Memorial Day Weekend so we hope you can join us if you'll be in town!) As always, lunch will be provided for volunteer workers!

The regular Spring Trailwork Day is scheduled for June 16th to continue on this trail .

This is a supplement to the two 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!

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.
