Join SingularCity’s new “I Heart Hiking” group leader James on Saturday, November 23 at 10 a.m. for a pre-Thanksgiving hike on the Malibu Creek Trail that explores the heart of this picturesque state park.
It’s an easy, nearly level walk that visits a dramatic rock gorge, Century Lake and several locations used by film makers and TV producers, including for “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Planet of the Apes,” and the television show “M*A*S*H” (several set pieces from M*A*S*H are still here).
This route follows the namesake of the park as it meanders through several areas of spectacular scenery. This is an outstanding example of Southern California terrain that’s definitely not to be missed.
The hike is about 5 miles but doable for beginners since it’s mostly flat.
After the hike, those who like can join us for lunch at Ladyface Ale Companie located at 29281 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills, CA.
Directions to trailhead: From Paciﬁc Coast Highway, turn inland on Malibu Canyon Road and proceed 6.5 miles to the park entrance, 0.25 mile south of Mulholland Highway. If you’re coming from the San Fernando Valley, exit the Ventura Freeway (101) on Las Virgenes Road and continue four miles to the park entrance. Find us in the parking lot at the trailhead near the park entrance. View Map.
There is a $12 fee to park in the lot at the trail head. To avoid that, park on the side of the road outside on the corner of Las Virgenes and Mulholland and then walk into the park to meet us in the trailhead parking lot.
This is a great way to burn some calories before Turkey Day!
