Day 708: Old Conejo Road Trail - Newbury Park

The Mountain over the Vallecito Comunity

Day #708 * Hike #856 * New Track #687
Wednesday October 24, 2012
Old Conejo Road Trail - Newbury Park, CA
My Tripometer: 45 Minutes * 1.5 Miles * +250 Feet

From the 101 Freeway in Newbury Park, exit on Wendy and then turn down Old Conejo Road.  Follow this for about a mile.  You will pass Reino and the road will turn to the right.  The trailhead is on the right, before the mobile park entrance.

 Only about a half mile to the top; at times a little steep

 There's a T-junction up here - I chose left...

 Hoping for a loop back down, the trail ends at the weigh station
(only about a quarter mile walk; 1/2 mile return to T-Junction)

 The end of the trail...

There is no reasonable way down from here - no trail.  This route was maybe another quarter mile from the junction (1/2 mile return).  It was a very easy and meaningless hike.  I suppose if I was a boy in the neighborhood this spot could be cool.  King of the Hill or something.  Actually, it's kind of neat that there is no other way in or out.  I crossed by this trailhead several months ago when the grade was on fire.  I took some hikes by the mobile park and noticed this unnamed trail.  As promised, I returned and here it is...

One little up hill back before heading down...
