Hiking Ventura County
The west end of the Santa Monica mountains extends into Ventura County, providing plenty of trails around Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks. Strolls along the beach can be found near the city of Ventura. The south end of the county includes parts of the Santa Monica mountains, Simi hills, and Santa , Susana Mountains which also extend into Los Angeles County. Beautiful coastal hikes can be found in Point Mugu State Park on the border of Malibu.
The city of Ojai is inland from the coast and wrapped by lovely green mountains. These are the Topa Topa Mountains, protected by Los Padres National Forest, and packed with excellent hiking.
