Evening Hike: Heartbreak Hill – Liberty Canyon – Phantom Trail Loop
Join us for a 4.5 mile loop hike into the Liberty Canyon Preserve by way of Heartbreak Hill. They don’t call the hill “Heartbreak” for nothing. The first half mile contains a 500 ft elevation gain. The next mile has a couple rolling hills. After that its all downhill on the Phantom Trail into Liberty Canyon. We will exit the Preserve on Liberty Canyon Trail and return to Agoura Rd along residential Liberty Canyon Rd.
Its not as bad as it sounds. Since the strenuous section is short, this is a good hike for moderate hikers to test themselves. Net elevation gain is about 650 ft, total ascent 1,075 ft
Bring one quart water, and a rewarding snack for the top
From Highway 101, exit on Liberty Canyon Road and drive 0.1 mile south to Agoura Road. Turn right and drive 0.3 mile. Trail head will be on the left. Park on either side of the road.
Address on map is approximate. Here is what the trail head looks like
Trail statistics are approximate. For safety purposes always assume they are underestimated. But don’t be disappointed if they are overestimated. Bring more water and snacks than you think you’ll need.
Trail descriptions are based on previous hikes. Current conditions are unknown until arrival. Expect the unexpected and plan accordingly.
