Jackie and I stopped in the Thousand Oaks area on our way to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving, just a few short hikes before we were due to arrive at my sister's place. The temperature was quite fine in the early afternoon when we started, but the air was hazy, marring views.

Conejo BM

The summit appears to be located in Open Space areas northwest of Newbury Park, though there are no signs to indicate it as such. It is a short but steep climb from the south, starting from the end of Grand Vista Dr. Between the Senior Living facility to the west and the US Postal Service building to the east, there is an old road that climbs up to a saddle on the southeast side of the summit. A social trail then goes up the ridge with a short class 3 step to get through a small rock band and on to the summit. As others reported, no benchmark to be found any longer. The roundtrip was about 30min.

Peak 1,510ft

This peak is located in the Los Padres Open Space on the south side of US101, between Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks. We used the Los Padres TH located on Los Padres Drive where the trail begins with a lovely stroll through oak woodlands, along a normally dry creek. After about half a mile, it climbs out of the drainage to a junction with the Los Robles Trail, an old ranch road we followed up to the crest. Here we turned east onto the Edison Utility road that goes around the base of Peak 1,510ft. Jackie balked halfway up the final cross-country portion along the upper West Ridge, and went back down to the road to wait for me. I went up through the modest brush on a very weak social trail, took a few photos, and returned to collect her. We were back from the 4mi effort after about an hour and forty minutes.
