Hey Everyone,

Come join us on this spectacular hike as we journey to Red Rock Canyon! This prehistoric canyon lives up to its name with its red-colored earthy formations that erupted millions of years ago. Along the way, the ever-changing scenery and sweeping vistas of this hike will knock your socks off!

We'll be hiking on a pretty little trail that slowly climbs towards Calabasas Peak. Then we'll drop down into the canyon, passing unusual rock formations along the way to the Red Rocks. We'll take a short break at the restroom/picnic area, then head back up the canyon and to the first parking lot to carpool back to the trailhead.

This is a car shuttle hike so we'll be meeting at the parking lot and carpooling to the traihead.
