Los Padres

This open space unit is located near the southern end of Moorpark Road, and encompasses 187 acres of chaparral-covered hillsides and oak woodlands. This area includes one of the most beautiful stands of coast live oaks in the City, and can be easily accessed from the Los Padres Trail on the west side of Los Padres Drive. This trail also provides a direct link to the Los Robles Trail near the ridgeline. This area is frequented by deer, rabbits, California quail, California thrashers and many other birds and animals. In the spring and fall, the oak woodlands are an excellent place to observe migrating birds such as warblers and vireos. Most of this open space area is owned by COSCA.
