Moderate five round trip mile hike, with a total elevation gain/loss about 400
feet. Follow the trail from Newbury Park to the Hill Canyon Water Treatment
Plant. There is pleasant scenery along the Barranca and through riparian native
plant communities. Return by way of the same trails. There are five creek crossings
in each direction. Some of the crossings have rock fords or pallet bridges.
How to get there: From 101 Freeway, drive 1/4 mile north on Ventu Park Rd. Turn
right into the parking lot at the Rancho Conejo Playfields.
