Wildwood Park is a stunning nature preserve in Thousand Oaks, California. From Los Angeles, take Highway 101 North to the 23 North. Exit Avenida De Los Arboles. Go West on Arboles (Left) until the road ends. You will see the trailhead at the end of the road. Wildlife is abundant. I have scene rattle snakes, deer, coyote, hawks, owls and a bobcat in the area. It’s a fantastic day hike. The highlight is a 50 foot waterfall aptly named Paradise Falls.
