Park in the dirt lot on the east side (left side if coming from Kanan) of the road. It's easy to miss so watch carefully!

Join CORBA and the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council as we head to the the Backbone Trail from Latigo Canyon Road.

We will be clearing overgrowing brush and cleaning out drains on this visit.

After the work day is over, CORBA will treat you to lunch. Be sure to bring some snacks with you because trailwork doesn't end until early afternoon.

No experience is necessary to help out with trailwork. Tools and instructions on how to use them safely and effectively will be provided. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must be over 7-years old to attend, and children under 14 must be constantly and directly supervised by their parent or guardian who brought them. Please leave your 4-legged children at home!

And you don't need to be a mountain biker to help out - Everybody is welcome! For more information on trailwork in general, visit our trail crew web page (

Be sure to wear protective clothing (sturdy shoes, long pants and sleeves, hat, gloves) and bring snacks, sunscreen and water. CORBA will provide the tools and training. Everybody works at their own pace.

We request that you pre-register (by RSVPing "Yes") so that we'll know how many tools to provide. Remember, by registering here, CORBA will treat you to lunch afterwards.

The thank-you lunch will be after trailwork ends at 2:30 pm, so bring some snacks to tide you over.

Everybody works at their own comfort level so you won't get worn down to a nub (unless you want to be)!

Directions to the trailhead parking on Latigo Cyn Rd:

From the 101 Freeway in Agoura, exit at Kanan Rd and head south (towards the beach). Drive 6.7 miles and turn right on Latigo Cyn Rd (about a half mile past Mulholland). Continue 2.9 miles on Latigo; the dirt parking lot will be on the left side. Watch carefully for it because it's hard to see when approaching from this direction.

From the PCH, turn north on Latigo Cyn Road in Malibu. Drive 7.3 miles to the dirt parking area on the right.
