Hidden Meadows Trail

Conejo Open Space

17th Annual Conejo Open Space Trail Work Day

Hidden Meadows Trail begins at the northwest end of Falling Star Avenue in Thousand Oaks. It runs north and connects up to other trails in the Lang Ranch / Simi Hills area.

See map of Hidden Meadows trailhead.

Rains the night before softened the soil up nicely and made for beautiful scenery in the morning.

The project involved re-routing a large portion of the existing trail. The new section has a much better grade and drainage, plus curves and other features that make it a more interesting and fun trail to hike, run or ride.

Some before & after shots:

These give you a flavor of what the "trail" was like before:

The bbq lunch was excellent as always.

About 130 people attended COSCA's annual event. Link to COSCA's website for more info and photos.
