It’s New Map Monday! Los Robles – Felton St. to Angel Vista via the Dragonback Hills

Published by Steve Clark on


  • Pretty route with quick access for Newbury Park residents
  • Great views at Angel Vista – from the Channel Islands to Topatopa Bluff to the Santa Suzana Mountains to Mount Baldy
  • Experience the “Dragonback Hills”


This out-and-back route gets you to Angel Vista by way of the challenging Dragonback Hills. Part of the Los Robles Trail follows a very narrow easement between private property. It goes straight up and down the steep slope – the Dragonback Hills. This section of the trail is always deeply rutted, loose and slippery. But if you’re up to it – they’re a great challenge! Its steepness is such that few mountain bikers can descend it without sliding into a rut, and even fewer can climb it. But once you get past them to Angel Vista, the view makes it all worthwhile!

Key Statistics
