Wildwood Moderate Hike – Canyon Overlook Trail to Lizard Rock

A moderate 2.8 miles hike with 950′ of climbing. The hike starts up a rough utility road to a ridgeline trail with spectacular views into Hill Canyon and to Elliott Peak to the west, and Mt Clef Butte to the east, ending at Lizard Rock with its own amazing views.

Start at the parking area on Hill Canyon Road and climb Canyon Overlook. Follow it all the way to Lizard Rock Trail, then turn right and up. At the next fork, 350 yards on, keep right and going uphill. 200 feet further, turn right to get to the top of Lizard Rock and enjoy the view, then return to the lesser-used ridgeline trail. Follow it until it rejoins the Canyon Overlook Trail, and then on back to the parking spot.

From the 101 Freeway in Camarillo, take exit 52 onto Santa Rosa Road and drive northeast. After 5 miles, turn right onto Hill Canyon Rd. Continue to the parking on the left, 0.6 miles on.
