We are about due for a hike to the MASH site. For those unfamiliar with this site, we will be visiting the exterior set for the long-running television show M*A*S*H. The medic tents have been removed, but the location is still recognizable, providing a rich experience for hikers.

For those familiar with this hike be prepared for something a little different. The route we are taking is exclusive to our group: You'll exprience my two "secret trails" which I have dubbed "The Lookout Bypass" and "The Cage Creek Elevator"

Highlights along the way include the old Malibu Reagan Ranch, Reagan Meadows, Century Lake and Malibou Lake

Hike is a moderate 6-7 miles with a couple of steep sections. No beginners

The trail signs are incorrect

Armond is on right doing his rendition of Suicide is Painless

Post-hike lunch will be at the Adobe Cantina ( where you can sip Margaritas under Ladyface Mountain


The Old Reagan Ranch parking lot is on the Southeast corner of Cornell Rd and Mullholland Hwy

From the Ventura Freeway (US 101) in Agoura take the Kanan Road offramp and turn south. Follow Kanan, turn left on Cornell Way, bear right onto Cornell Road for a couple miles, cross Mulholland and turn left into Reagan Ranch.

From PCH/Santa Monica turn right onto Malibu Canyon for 6.3 miles then turn left onto Mulholland Hwy. After 3.2 miles turn left onto Lake Vista Dr (Cornell Rd). Turn left into Reagan Ranch
