A brand new hike

The Pentachaeta Trail, the main feature of Triunfo Creek Park, is named after the Pentachaeta lyonii, a federally-listed endangered flower found in the park. The yellow, daisy-like flower is found only in Southern California, and blooms between April and June.

We will join each end of the Pentachaeta Trail with the ridgeline that divides Triunfo and Lobo Canyons to make a 5 to 6 mile loop. Along the way we will have views of the Las Virgenes Reservoir and Westlake Reservoir.

There is a net elevation gain of almost 700 ft, some of it rocky. Trekking pole (for a couple of short downhill sections) and sturdy hiking boots recommended. We may explore some side trails to get mileage up toward the 6 mile mark.

Special thanks to Katya for helping me explore the area.

Directions:

From the 101 Freeway exit Lindero Canyon Rd and turn south. At the end of Lindero, turn left onto Triunfo Canyon Rd. Trailhead is on the right, across from entrance to Oak Forest Mobile Home Park
