It’s New Map Monday in Wildwood: Lizard Rock and Hidden Rim Trails Figure 8 Double Loop

Published by Steve Clark on


  • From the Lizard Rock Trail, there are great views into three different canyons
  • See the volcanic legacy of the Conejo Valley firsthand on the Stagecoach Bluff Trail
  • Cross the new Conejo Canyons Vehicle Bridge, expected to be completed in late winter 2024
  • The Lizard Rock Trail is included in the 2024 Conejo Open Space Challenge, shown in green on the map below


This route is only 5.7 miles long but nevertheless it will be a good workout because it has a lot of climbing! You’ll see the geological history of the Conejo Valley close up, including three canyons: Hill, Hawk and Wildwood. It avoids the overcrowded Paradise Falls, but you can make a short detour if you want to see them. And if Stagecoach Bluff Trail is too rocky for you, take the parallel Wildwood Mesa Trail instead for almost the same overall distance.

These trails are very popular so you can expect to see a lot of other people, including mountain bikers. It is recommended that you do the loops in a direction so that you are climbing the Lizard Rock and Hidden Rim Trails. That way you will be able to see mountain bikers approaching in front of you.
