THE Easy WAY TO PARADISE FALLS, Indian Creek waterfall and the Indian Cave
HOW LONG: 3 to 4 miles on the volcanic tableland and canyon that drains out of the Conejo Valley
WHEN: 10 Am to 1 PM
DIFFICULTY: Easy, and the park has drinking water and restrooms
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: 101 freeway west to Thousand Oaks, exit at Lynn Road. Turn right and go north 3 miles to Avenida de los Arboles and turn left (west). There is a big sign saying "Wildwood Park thisaway" here. Follow the road all the way until it ends at the Wildwood Park parking lot. (The road makes a sharp right turn here--instead, turn left into the parking lot). If parking lot is full, there is street parking or an overflow lot 1/3rd mile to the east at the Wildflower Park and Ball field. See the printable map below!
