Details

Exploratory route on trails through Wildwood Park to Paradise Falls (30-40 feet tall), cool volcanic formations on MountClef Ridge and in Conejo Canyon, maybe across the new bridge to the ridgeline to see the Channel Islands

(these are all trails, I just haven't decided which route I like best yet)

the hike is from noon to 5 at the latest. Maximum distance is 8 miles, with elevation gain of 200 feet from the parking lot to MountClef ridge, then we drop down 750 feet to the bottom of Conejo Canyon, and climb back up to Paradise falls. I rate this hike as mid level of difficulty.
