Hike Week to Two Trees: May 13-15
May 13, 2020 - May 15, 2020
We are so excited to get back out hiking on the trails.
We have some modified protocol so please be patient with us as we navigate this process. The main difference will be the sign up process. In order to minimize contact on the day of the hike, the sign up will be online through signup genius.
There will be 3 main groups; 9am-11am, 12pm-2pm, 3pm-5pm. In each group there are four time slots to sign up for. The time slot indicates what time you will depart for your hike. The departure times are staggered in order to ensure proper social distancing on the trail.
Please arrive 20 minutes before your departure time. You will have a two hour window to hike to Two Trees and enjoy nature along the way. If you have never done this hike before, we are so excited to have you out to share the beauty, tranquility, and fresh air the hillsides provide. Please be sure to read the information below which gives important information about the hike.
Guests will meet at the Entrance to Barlow Canyon off Foothill Road - 3999 Foothill Road. Due to the nature of the terrain the hikes can be considered moderately difficult and out-and-back up and down steep slopes. The distance from Barlow Canyon to Two trees is approximately 1.5 miles with an elevation gain of 716 feet over the course of the hike for an out and back trip of around 3 miles. Average hike times take between an hour to an hour and a half. We ask all attending to:
- Wear proper attire for the weather on the given day.
- Apply sunscreen.
- Wear appropriate footwear. No flip flops please.
- Pace themselves during the duration of the hike according to their ability.
- Bring water or a sports drink for hydration.
- Bring a camera for photo opportunities.
- No dogs, please.
Guests will get to visit the permanently preserved land in the Ventura Hillsides, take in incredible views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and the Cities of Ventura and Oxnard, and the Los Padres National Forest and Topa Topa Mountains to the North and Santa Monica Mountains to the Southeast. Hike leaders will teach the story of the land, History of Two Trees, facts about wildlife and more during the hike. Pre-registry is required to attend the event.
Notes: Hikes will be rescheduled in the event of bad weather including rain or extreme heat. All guests are required to sign waiver of liability at the onset of each outing.
