Mash Site – Malibu Creek State Park Potluck Hike

Fit Beginner – 6 miles, 600′ gain

This is a social hike and an out-and-back event.

There is a potluck at the M.A.S.H. site before we turn around for the return. If your item requires paper plates, utensils, etc. please bring them.

Pot Luck guidelines:

We will meet at the Grasslands trail head off of Mulholland Hwy and take the Grasslands Trail with a gentle climb and connect to the High Road (~3/4 miles). We’ll take a right and follow the High Road another 3/4 miles then take a right at Crag Road up a short 1/3 mile climb (170′ gain). At the top of the hill, we’ll take a left turn down the short bypass trail to Century Lake.

From Century Lake, the trail is level all the way to the M.A.S.H. site. From the lake we’ll continue on Crag Road and at a 1/2 mile we’ll cross over Malibu Creek. The bridge over the creek is washed out, so we’ll have cross over some fallen branches and rocks just beyond the bridge (I’m not sure of the water level or conditions of the creek, so there is a chance you may get wet). Another 3/4 miles on Crag Road we’ll reach our destination and have our potluck.
