The hiking in this area will give you a good workout. We'll hike for about 2 hours (between 6 and 7 miles) through gently rolling hills.

The huge parkland is part of a critical ecological linkage and wildlife corridor between the Santa Monica Mountains and the ranges to the north. Rolling hills studded with valley oaks, sycamore-lined canyon bottoms, miles of potential trails, and vistas of unspoiled California landscapes are now part of a parkland legacy. Diverse habitats and endangered species such as the California red-legged frog, the San Fernando Valley spineflower, and the Southwestern willow flycatcher are now permanently protected.

Access to the park is at the Victory Trailhead at the western terminus of Victory Boulevard in Woodland Hills.
Directions:
Take the 101 Freeway to Valley Circle Drive. Exit Valley Circle and drive north until you get to Victory Blvd.
Turn left onto Victory Blvd from Valley Circle Drive and drive to the end where there is a parking area($3 fee for parking).

Meet at the trailhead.

Since we may be out beyond sunset I recommend parking outside of the gate on the street. You will be able to relax and enjoy the hike more if you don't have to rush to get back to your car.

Dogs on leashes are permitted.
Bring snacks and beverages!
Bring flashlight or headlamp for return trip just in case.

I'll collect $1 at the trailhead.

I am a volunteer (i.e. not liable for the group). Safety is a priority for everyone in the group. Think of this as hiking with a group of friends.

Responsibility: I am not responsible for you. You are responsible for you. You should be self-sufficient and be able to find your way to safety in the event you find yourself on your own. I will not lead you back to the trailhead if you decide to turn back.

Disclaimer: The organizer and assistant organizers take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during this hiking event. Hiking can be inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By participating in this hike posted on this meetup web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being.
