Corral Canyon – Puerco Canyon Loop – Malibu Seafood – BYOB


On this one we’ll visit the old pig farm and have a post-hike lunch at Malibu Seafood Patio where they let you bring your own drink.

Our hike will begin at sea level in Corral Canyon, the last undeveloped coastal canyon in Los Angeles County that flows freely to the ocean. Maybe there will be water in the creek this time. We will then leave Corral Canyon for my “secret trail” through pristine wilderness to the Puerco Canyon watershed divide that provides spectacular ocean and mountain views. The trail isn’t so secret any more, but it is the trail less traveled. We’ll return to the restaurant via another secret trail

We’ll have fun checking out the artifacts from a bygone era…and mysterious buildings…

Practice social distancing whenever possible, especially at trail head and break spots. Wear a mask or face shield whenever social distancing is impossible or impractical. It is mandatory that you bring a face shield. Bring hand sanitizer if you have it.

After the hike we’ll have lunch next door at Malibu Seafood Patio. Kitchen opens at 11:00 AM. Maybe we’ll spot some dolphins frolicking in the waves, or some celebrities.

They let you bring your own beverages including booze. So pack a cooler with your favorite beverage and enjoy a fresh seafood lunch by the trailhead — you will deserve it! I’ll bring some white wine.

Bring sunscreen, hat, 2 quarts water, sturdy shoes and a snack. Clothing optional.


Drive to Malibu Seafood at 25653 Pacific Coast Hwy and park on PCH or pay $8.00 at trailhead parking lot next to restaurant. Iron ranger accepts credit cards

  1. I’m looking forward to our first “semi-offical” hike during Covid season. So far we have about 9 people attending (numbers above are not accurate). Don’t forget to join the post hike lunch at Malibu Seafood, right there next to trailhead. They allow you to bring your own beverages, including alcohol. I will be fun!
