Please join me for a great workout, sunset, full moon and views!
Elevation Gain: about 700 ft.
Difficulty level: moderate
Testimonials from past hike:
We'll hike 4.6 miles roundtrip at a moderate level along the Musch Trail. We'll see the ocean at one point along the trail. We can hike up a little bit steeper trail to Eagle Rock and get an even greater view of the ocean. This is a loop trail, so it won't be repetitious.
Bring a headlamp or flashlight for the descent back to the cars. We will be out after it gets dark.
From the Ventura Freeway (101), exit at Topanga Canyon Boulevard, drive south over the crest of the mountains and proceed three miles to Entrada Road (not Entrado!) and turn left. Keep to the left at every opportunity until you reach the park's main parking lot (about one mile)
From Pacific Coast Highway, travel north on Topanga Canyon Boulevard, pass the post office at the center of "town," then turn right on Entrada Road. Keep to the left at every opportunity until you reach the park's main parking lot (about one mile).
There is parking in the lot for $10. You can also park on the road outside of the park for free.
Dogs are not allowed on this hike as it is a state park.
I am a volunteer (i.e. not liable for the group). Safety is a priority for everyone in the group. Think of this as hiking with a group of friends.
