A hike in the reverse direction looks like a whole new hike! Join us!

Dos Vientos was the center of the Springs Fire last May. There are a host of single track trails added to existing Edison access roads to form a network of trails that take us from civilization to wilderness in minutes. About half of the area where we will be hiking is burned from last spring, with some evidence of regrowth, and the other half is unscathed from the fire.

This is a 5.5 mile loop hike with about 900' roller coastering feet of elevation gain and loss.

Along the way, we'll get distant views of Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, the Santa Monica Mts., two of the Channel Islands, the Pacific Coast, a secluded pond, and more wide open space than you'll ever need. There is no shade or protection along the trail, so come prepared with plenty of protection and water if it is sunny or hot.

This is a gentler hike. We will go at a more moderate pace than a regular Trailblazer hike, and we'll take more breaks. The purpose is to give novice and intermediate hikers who may feel they're not up to a regular hike a chance to get out and experience our beautiful trails. Faster hikers are welcome to come along, with the understanding that the hike is geared toward those who want to go at an easier pace.

Dogs are not allowed on any morning hike.

Directions:

From the 101 Freeway in Newbury Park, exit at Borchard Road. Drive 3.4 miles and turn into the Dos Vientos Community Park on the right, just after Via Ricardo (and before Via Las Brisas). Meet at the south-east corner of the parking lot (by the Tennis Courts).
