Location image of event venue

Details

Hike and rock/cave play is 4 hours or so, maybe 8 miles....ok, I'm just guessing

Hike is a "lollipop" route, whatever that means.

We will spend about half the time hiking, and half the time climbing around on rocks and caves

The trailhead is at 24126 Mulholland Highway, a quarter mile west of the intersection with Mountain Park Drive and Dry Canyon Cold Creek roads.

PARKING IS ALONG THE ROADSIDE

DIRECTIONS: DO NOT TAKE PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY UNLESS YOU LIKE LONG TRAFFIC JAMS. TAKE THE 101 FREEWAY AND EXIT AT TOPANGA CANYON BLVD AND GO SOUTH TO MULHOLLAND
