Come join us on a FOURTH O F JULY HIKE ! ! ! ! WATCH THE *F I R E WO R K S* FROM A FANTASTIC VIEWPOINT, RIGHT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD!

You won't have to worry about traffic or drunk drivers!

We'll be doing the Los Robles trail. Starting off at the Greenmeadow trailhead, weโ€™ll start the hike with a short walk through a beautiful oak grove on the Oak Creek Canyon trail. That will connect to the Los Robles trail and a steady climb to the top (approx. 500 ft.) with gorgeous views of the Conejo Valley. At the top, weโ€™ll watch the sun set and view the fireworks while we enjoy some snacks and beverages. Then weโ€™ll make our descent and meander through another beautiful oak grove.

Weโ€™ll be doing some of this hike in the dusk/dark. Bring a headlamp or flash light if desired. It might get cool so bring something warm to change into for the picnic.

Your favorite beverage is highly recommended and of course, bring what you love to eat and share! Please post what youโ€™re bringing in the โ€œTalk About This Meetupโ€ section so we all know what to expect. Have the usual lugsoles, water, etc.
