Don't let the word "peak" scare you. Although there is a steady climb on this one, it's moderate and worth it to get to the top. This is an out and back trip on part of the Backbone trail. We'll pass unusual sandstone outcroppings on our climb to the top and be awarded with fantastic views of the Pacific, San Fernando and Conejo Valleys and beyond. There is a nice flat area at the top where we can have our potluck.

This is not to be missed!

Miles: 3.2
Elevation gain/loss 950'
Length: ? It's a party, there's no hurry!
Terrain: obvious routes and marked trails on packed earth
Suitable for fit beginners as well as the seasoned hiker.

Party beverages are highly recommended and of course, bring what you love to eat and share! Homemade is always appreciated. Please post what youโ€™re bringing in the โ€œTalk About This Meetupโ€ section so we all know what to expect. We'll be packing in our goodies to share at the top.

Weโ€™ll be doing some of this hike in the dusk/dark. Bring a headlamp or flash light if desired. Have the usual lugsoles, water, etc. I suggest wearing layers.

DIRECTIONS: From the 101 Freeway exit Las Virgenes Rd. heading south towards Malibu. Make a left turn on Mulholland Highway and go about 4 miles to Stunt Rd and turn right. Take Stunt Rd. exactly 2.9 miles where you'll see a turnout on the left hand side where I'll be waiting. This is across the street from the trailhead and where we'll meet. Parking is limited here but there is a larger parking turnout nearby at miler marker 3. Carpooling is recommended.
