Calleguas Creek Bike Path Description

Tucked away in aptly named Pleasant Valley at the foot of the Conejo Hills some 50 miles from Los Angeles, the small town of Camarillo boasts 300 days of sunshine annually and many opportunities for fun, such as visiting the Calleguas (pronounced ky-YAY-gas) Creek Bike Path. This 4.4-mile trail traces Calleguas Creek in the eastern part of Camarillo and provides views of the surrounding foothills as well as the namesake creek, an ephemeral stream that runs only when fed sufficient rainwater. The creek is part of the 343-square-mile Calleguas Creek Watershed in Ventura County and is home to a variety of plant and animal life, including low-lying greenery, the occasional shady tree, and 370 bird species. Abundant sign-age provides information about the area’s bird bio-diversity along with route guidance.

The paved bike path can also host walkers, runners, and in-line skaters along its undulating route. Note that some of its hills could be challenging for wheelchairs. The path is managed by the city and enables visitors and residents to conveniently explore local neighborhoods, schools, and parks.

The trail's western endpoint is at the Pleasant Valley Fields, where ample parking (more than 600 spots), restrooms, and drinking water are available. Located near a school and family YMCA, the 55-acre park is equipped with playground equipment, picnic areas, lighted sports fields, a snack bar during events, and a paved pathway to allow for easy navigation around the fields.

Running for 0.9 mile from west to east on the north side of the park to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the trail arrives at a T junction at Calleguas Creek for the 2.6-mile north–south trail segment.

Those turning south can take the trail for approximately 1 mile along the creek’s west bank to its endpoint at Pleasant Valley Road and Bridgehampton Way. About halfway down, Woodside Park can be seen to the east.

Heading north from the T junction, users will pass beneath US 101 and then between the creekbed and the back of a business district. About 1.1 mile north of US 101, a side trail on the left connects to Cedarbrook Walk, which ends in 0.1 mile at Pitts Ranch Park. Another of the town’s 28 parks, this 10-acre landscaped facility has restrooms, drinking fountains, and parking. Returning to the trail, visitors will trace a residential area for another mile north to the end at Upland Road.

An unattached, 0.5-mile trail segment that runs along the east side of Calleguas Creek can be reached via the bridges at Adolfo Road or Mission Oaks Boulevard. The 3-acre Calleguas Creek Park is located at the northern end of this section and has a drinking fountain, a playground, and picnic tables.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in multiple lots at Pleasant Valley Fields (150 Westpark Ct, Camarillo) and at Pitts Ranch Park (1400 Flynn Rd, Camarillo) near the trail's northern end.

Locked Gate :(

I went to this trail the other day to rollerblade. After looking at pictures here I was really excited to finally have a place in TO to rollerblade I was sad to find that after maybe going half a mile there was a locked gate with what looked like construction on the other side.

'm not sure if the trail was just closed when I got there or if it's permanently closed, but it was a bummer to drive 20 minutes just to go back and forth on the part of trail available to me and zoom around the parking lots. If this is a fluke pls let me know because I want a place to rollerblade.

Family trail!

Really great trail for families with kids.

Scenic & Well Maintained Bike Path

This is one of my favorite bike paths. The white fencing outlines this path well and the gentle slopes make it a fun ride. The surrounding mountains and hillsides are gorgeous just before sunset. Ample parking and restrooms at the southern end of the trail in Pleasant Valley Fields.

Amazing Bike Path

This trail is heavily used by so many people and visitors from outside the City. I give it a rating of 10/10 because of how it was built with so much engining thought. The trail runs next to Calleguas Creek from Upland all the way to the Pleasant Valley Field complex on the west side of the 101 freeway. The enterances to the path are so well posted and easy to enter with a trike. There are a lot of other cyclist with all types and class, and along side there path is filled with the usual dog walkers and runner. I love the way the path crossess the roads by building a path underneath the road, and this allows it to be very safe for everyone! The bathrooms are at the Pleasant Valley Fields and at Pitts Ranch Park and are very clean. I ride a trike and sometimes I find myself zoning out as I peddle down the path because it is so relaxing. I am sure you will too!!!!
