Sunset Hills Open Space


The Sunset Hills Open Space consists of more than 410 acres distributed throughout the Sunset Hills community in northern Thousand Oaks. The largest portion, which consists of 238 acres, is located on Erbes Road, east of the 23 Freeway, and south of Olsen Road. There are several trails within the 238 acre preserve that provide views of the Bard Reservoir, which is between Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley. On a clear day, hikers can see the Pacific Ocean. The Sunset Hills Open Space provides a habitat for many birds including red-tailed hawks, black-shouldered kites, and northern harriers. The Sunset Hills Open Space is owned and maintained by the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency.
