From February 1 through May 1, 2013, mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners and equestrians of all ages are challenged to experience ten of the best and most beautiful multi-use trails in the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency (COSCA). This is a “virtual” event, where you will take photos of specific landmarks along trails and email them in for validation to show you have completed all of the event’s trail segments. The goal is to create a unique event to benefit COSCA that involves all trail users, from people completely unfamiliar with the trails to long time veterans. Participants who complete all 10 segments by May 1 will be entered into a raffle to win prizes donated by event sponsors: Michaels Bicycles, Roadrunner Sports, Boney Mountain Coffee, and Billy D’z BBQ. Prizes will also be given for best photos as judged by the Conejo Open Space Foundation (cosf.org). Photos will also be available on COSCA’s Facebook page and at COSF’s website.

Editor’s note: I will be leading hikes over the next three months that cover the trails of the Conejo Open Space Challenge. You can get the details and sign up to join us at the Fun in the Sun Club Meetup group. Expect them to be moderately paced, covering 4-6 miles, except for the first one that is only 2 miles but includes an introduction to geocaching. The first three hikes are scheduled for January 2o, February 16 and February 17.
