Walk up the hill and you will find the Trailhead
The Triunfo Canyon Trail leads you up a gentle incline underneath the shade of old oaks. In pursuit of the Los Robles Trail, you rise into the sagebrush and when you are high enough, there is a view looking back of Westlake Lake, I think. It was either that or the reservoir. The view is partially obtructed by the nearby hills and with the sun still going down early, I pushed up the trail quickly.
After a mile of uphill, I reached Edison Road/Los Robles Trail and turned left. You immediatately hit another junction and my plan was to take the low road (right fork). Trekking downhill a hundred fifty feet or so, you hear nothing! The valley below is vacant and the traffic of life is somewhere to be found. The 1.2 mile stretch was quick until you start climbing again. I admit, I slowed my jog into a swift uphill walk. Finally, I reached another junction known as White Horse. I turned left down the narrow trail but was very cautious with my footing. There is a lot of loose gravel initially on this steep introduction. The trail leveled out and then continue lower so I resumed my jogging pace. Halt! Breaks on! A narrow uphill junction intersects on the left. There is no sign but from what I remembered on the map, my intention was to go that direction. A quick 150 foot climb over 0.2 miles, I met another narrow junction. Hmm, I think I go right this time? I had made a total of three left turns and yeah, right seems right. Another quartermile up, I intersect another junction with sign posts! One post read, "White Horse Loop". That trail went to the right so I know that was wrong. However, the other post read "Equestrian Alternate". Hmm, i don't remember seeing that on the map, but maybe that was code for what I though was a road heading back to Brookview Ave. My plan was to hike a 4 mile loop and then walk the street a quarter mile back to the park.
I continued jogging with hesitance because I was very wary about my location. I was at a higher elevation and figured that by now, I would be able to see that body of water again. Instead, down below to the left was a housing track. Well, maybe that is Brookview.
