Secret trail to Calabasas Peak and pyramid of caves!
4 miles, medium level of difficulty.
We will spend about half the time hiking, and half the time climbing around on rocks and caves
The trailhead is at 24126 Mulholland Highway, a quarter mile west of the intersection with Mountain Park Drive and Dry Canyon Cold Creek roads.
PARKING IS ALONG THE ROADSIDE
DIRECTIONS: DO NOT TAKE PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY UNLESS YOU LIKE LONG TRAFFIC JAMS. TAKE THE 101 FREEWAY AND EXIT AT TOPANGA CANYON BLVD AND GO SOUTH TO MULHOLLAND
NOTE: I USUALLY WAIT TEN MINUTES PAST THE PLANNED STARTING TIME FOR THOSE WITH A GOOD REASON, LIKE THEIR DOG ATE THEIR SHOES, ETC.
If really lost or just not certain who to vote for in the next presidential election, text me at 310-738-0861
My hikes feature lots of Monkeying around. Definition (from Rex’s dictionary): hiking plus assorted tomfoolery involving cool boulders and caves, providing a workout for both your legs and arms, while our hike leader plays guitar and attempts to sing
