Needs a location
Let's try this again! We got rained out on Nov. 29th but we are not giving up.
We will hike on the Albertson Fireroad in the Lang Ranch area of Thousand Oaks. The trail is mostly a gently climbing, well-travelled fireroad, with a section of broad singletrack. We'll hike up to the Bridal-Path Home Owners Association portcullis (2.5 miles), then turn around and head back down.
Statistics: 5 miles with about 1000' of climbing.
Pace: 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 join us so long as they are willing to hike at the slower pace of the group. However, this hike is probably too difficult for someone who is new to hiking, or hasn't been hiking in a long time. We typically finish about 12:30 pm, but could be delayed for any number of reasons. If you are looking for a fast-paced hike, or have to finish by a specific time, this hike is probably not for you.
Directions: From the 23 Freeway, take Exit 15 at Avendida De Los Arboles and head east. Drive 1.4 miles to Westlake Blvd and turn right. Take the next left, after 0.2 miles, onto Lang Ranch Parkway and drive 0.8 miles to the Albertson Fireroad trailhead at the end.
