The Paradise Falls at Wildwood Park Thousand Oaks!


During our holiday in Newbury Park we wanted to do a picnic walk to the Paradise Falls at Wildwood Park Thousand Oaks. Wildwood Park is not far from where our family lives. It is a nature reserve in Thousand Oaks, California, known for its varied landscape and offers many recreational opportunities. You can go hiking, mountain biking, jogging, horseback riding and picnicking there.

There are several hiking trails for every age group and it is also suitable for families with small children and dogs. So just right for my little grandson and the two Shiba Inu's.

To get there we had to leave Highway 101 from Thousand Oaks towards Lynn Road, drive about 2.5 miles on Lynn Road and then turn left onto Avenida de Los Arboles. At the end of this street is a parking lot on the left.

There are some beautiful spots to see in the Wildwood Regional Park. The Arroyo Conejo Creek meanders through the landscape and is the longest tributary in the valley. The Lizard Rock rises over 500 meters and offers a magnificent view over the Conejo valley.

The Indian Cave, a cave you can walk through, is located about half a mile east of the Paradise Falls our destination.

Wege sind mit Hinweisschildern markiert und in gutem Zustand. All roads are marked with signs and in good condition.

Since the area there barely offers shade and we did not come so fast with the little grandson, we have decided on the shortest path to the waterfalls. He was not so exhausting for the little man and for us, since he also wanted to be worn now and then. This trail leads approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) through vast grasslands with thick cacti, Chaparral (evergreen oak) and Cleveland sage (Sage), all the way to the tepee.

war der ideale Ort für eine Ruhepause. We found a picnic table under a shady oak tree, just across the Paradise Falls, that was the perfect place to rest. There we were able to sit back comfortably, unpack our picnic and enjoy the hidden 20m high Paradise Falls at Wildwood Park. Although swimming and climbing around the waterfall is prohibited, we saw some people jump off the cliff and dive. Rested and freshly fortified, we made our way back.

Hard to believe that this quiet place is so close to the hustle and bustle of the city.
