“A wide fire road with beautiful views of the Santa Monica Mountains.”
— Doron Weinstein
Bear bells are recommended.
This is a wide, hard-packed, gravel fire road for those that love to climb. Some sections, that seem like they're never ending, are extremely steep, with many beautiful views along the way. That being said, there are not many trails that stem off of this fire road, so your options for singletrack are limited.
This stretch of fire road can be very warm and dry in the summer as it is near Calabasas, which is arguably one of the warmest parts of the Santa Monica Mountains. But in winter and spring, this place is beautiful, even for a hike-a-bike.
