Three Days. Three different hikes. All in the Conejo Canyons area (over 1,600 acres of open space that borders the western edge of Wildwood). Each route has a different starting location. Two entrances in Newbury Park drop down into the canyon, which means an uphill finish (which Kempsey doesn’t seem to mind a bit). The third starting area near Santa Rosa Park in Camarillo gives hikers the option of a relatively flat out-n-back hike along Hill Canyon and Hawk Canyon Trails, although when we started there we chose to climb up Col du Conejo.
Rather than a rambling monologue, this journal entry will be mostly a pictorial narrative, including captions to provide some details about our adventures. And yes, every outing with Kempsey is considered an adventure, including a walk through the neighborhood. “Adventure” is really a state of mind.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this presentation of our time in the Conejo Canyons Open Space. We certainly had fun exploring the area! And a shout out (plus photo credit) to my hubby who joined us on the Elliot Mountain hike.
