The NEW MILLENNIUM TRAIL is a relatively unknown jewel of a hike that traverses the mountains of Calabasas and includes a glimpse of the homes of celebrities in the Oaks Subdivision. The trail includes opportunities to hike through native oak woodland and oak Savannah habitats including several intermittent riparian environments associated with seasonal springs.
Distance: 11 mile loop
Elevation Gain: 2,200 ft-great conditioning hike because you go up and down throughout the hike
Hike Level:Intermediate due to distance and elevation gain.
Dogs(must be well-behaved) on leashes are welcome.
