Tarantula Hill

This area, named for the spiders which can occasionally be seen on its slopes, is located in the heart of Thousand Oaks near the Conejo Valley Botanic Gardens. Rising sharply from the valley floor, this 45-acre area provides panoramic views of Thousand Oaks. Parking is available on Gainsborough Road, with a paved service road providing access to the top of the hill. Tarantula Hill is owned by COSCA.
