Approximtely 6 mile loop.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS IN THE WRITEUP BELOW TO GET TO THE TRAILHEAD.
This Loop is almost 6 miles long. This hike is rated moderate for its elevation gain and distance. The group hikes between 2.5 and 3.5 mph. If you cannot hike at a minimum of 2.5 mph, please do not sign up for this hike.
I recommend this hike for people who are already in shape and want a mid-week conditioning hike.
Follow the directions to the trailhead as indicated below.
Drink plenty of water prior to and during the hike.
From the Las Virgenes Trail connect with the beautiful Cheseboro Canyon Ridge to Cheseboro Canyon and Loop back. (about 6 miles)
Note that we are starting at the Las Virgenes Trailhead on Las Virgenes Road.
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 up to the Cheseboro Ridge Trail and complete a loop.
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 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.
