Check Out These Hiking Trails in the Conejo Valley

Enjoy The Great Outdoors With These Beautiful Hiking Trails

Living in Southern California means enjoying the outdoors all year round, but especially during the spring and summer months. With plenty of hiking trails around the Conejo Valley, there is no excuse not to get outside this season. Check out these hiking trails that are perfect for people of all different skill levels.

The Boney Mountain Trail to Hidden Valley Overlook trail rewards you with some of the most beautiful views in the area. Take some time out of your hike to enjoy the benches that sit at the top of Sycamore Canyon and then continue on the trail that runs just a little over two miles.

The Ojai Valley Trail is a 10 mile trail that runs parallel to Highway 33, starting at Foster Park. The side of the trail is paved for bicyclists, joggers, and walkers. There is a post and rail fence that separates the paved path from the dirt path for horseback riders.

Ventura River Trail is just over 6 miles long and includes a pedestrian and bike path that follows the historic Southern Pacific Railroad. A lot of the trail parallels Ojai Freeway 33 and is also known as the Ojai Valley Trail Extension. There are many different access points to the trail, including Stanley Avenue, Shell Road, Orchard Drive, West Park Row Avenue, and more.

Malibu Creek State Park has more than 8,000 square miles of beautiful hills, scenery, and trails. The miles of trails throughout the park will take you through the old M*A*S*H series set, and will eventually lead you to a swimming hole, so make sure to bring your swimming suit.

Moving This Spring? Make Sure To Invest In The Right Insurance

Renter’s Insurance Coverage

Spring is the perfect time to find a new place to rent. No matter if you are searching for an apartment or a house to rent, you should also start looking for the right renter’s insurance policy to ensure that your new home is properly protected in case of any disaster.

Typical renter’s insurance policies have three main coverage options, including:

  • Personal property coverage – the insurance policy that your landlord has for your home will only provide coverage for the structure, not for any of your personal belongings that you keep inside. The personal property coverage that is provided by a renter’s insurance policy will provide protection in case your assets are stolen, damaged, or destroyed by a covered peril, such as a fire. If you have any valuable belongings, you may want to consider scheduling the items within your policy, which will provide additional coverage.
  • Liability coverage – the liability portion of your renter’s insurance will provide protection in case someone is injured while visiting your home. It will cover any legal expenses if they decide to sue you after the accident, as well as any medical bills that are associated with the accident. If you do not have liability coverage, your assets and savings may be put at risk after someone is injured at your home.
  • Coverage for additional living expenses – if your rental home is uninhabitable after a disaster, additional living expensive coverage will pay for a temporary living situation, such as if you have to move into a hotel. The coverage will also pay for any additional costs that are associated with having to move out, such as restaurant bills if you do not have a kitchen to cook in.
