Hike Level: Intermediate for distance.(Beginner's with a positive attitude would do well also.)

If you want to bring your dog, it's fine as long as the pooch is leashed.

We will start at the northern end of Las Virgenes Rd and hike to the Cheseboro Ridge Trail. We'll then proceed down to the Canyon View Trail to the Cheseboro Canyon Trail and loop back to the picnic table.

Directions: To get to trailhead take 101 and exit Las Virgenes Rd. Turn north (away from beach) to end of road. If you are coming up from PCH, drive up Malibu Canyon to the end (Malibu Cyn changes its name to Las Virgenes Rd). The trailhead is marked clearly. Park on the street. If you can't park near the trailhead, just look for space down the street. We'll wait until you walk to the trailhead.

Parking is free!!

    I am coming to visit family and would like to hike with the group while visiting my family. I was wondering if a female hiker here can give me a ride from my mother's house? She lives in Thousand Oaks close to Westlake Blvd. Thanks.
