It’s New Map Monday in Los Robles West: Rosewood Trail to Space Mountain Overlook
- Great views of the city and open space from the "Space Mountain" Overlook
- From the optional segment to Angel Vista, you can see from Dos Vientos to the Channel Islands when the sky is clear
This is a moderate 6.6 mile hike with an elevation gain/loss of about 1350 ft. The grades are gentle to moderate. The trails are on the north flank of the hillside covered with heavy chaparral so the direct sun is less intense than many other trails. Rosewood Trail leads up the hill and connects with Los Robles Trail. Continue east on Los Robles Trail to an overlook of “Space Mountain” with views of the open space on the right and of the Conejo Valley on the left. Return on the same trails, with a stop at Angel Vista for a 360° view of the entire area.
Distance: 6.6 miles, out and back following the yellow highlight on the map below. You can add on 0.6 miles if you take the pink segment, and another 0.15 miles if you take the green segment to Angel Vista.
