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, including alcohol.
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.
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…
Hike is about 7 miles, with about 1500 ft elevation gain. The area was hit hard by the Woolsey fire. No beginners
We will not be using the closed Sara Wan Trailhead. Our trail head is not on the list of closed MRCA trails; we may have to change plans at any time — we’ll play it by ear. Check here often and expect the unexpected!
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.
There is street parking on PCH at north side of restaurant and across the street (be careful crossing PCH). Avoid the pay lot if possible – we don’t want to attract to much attention to ourselves.
