Event Description

 March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb the saying goes. The day prior to this is St. Patrick's Day which applies a "luck of the Irish" veneer to this day's event we sense. Lambs and leprechauns, don't you just love 'em? The association of these cute diminutive guys bodes well, if only tangentially, for lovely weather and good times methinks. 

  We will target an irregular loop of 9-10 miles around the La Jolla Valley area in the western edge of the Santa Monica Mountains not far from Pt. Mugu. The vertical gain is in the range of 1800 - 2000 feet and we will top out at Mugu Peak where there are splendid coastal views on clear days.   Meet 9:30am in Malibu around the Starbucks at Malibu Country Mart which is at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Cross Creek Road. To reach this meeting point in Malibu, turn right off the Pacific Coast Highway onto Cross Creek Road if coming from the south / east or left if coming from the north / west. The Malibu pier is a good nearby local visual landmark.    For those comfortable with GPS systems, these are the carpool coordinates: 34.035152,-118.685239. After meeting here we will carpool up northwest along Pacific Coast Highway to the trailhead.   Bring 1+ liters liquid and a snack or lunch if you wish. The hike is also co-listed with the Sierra Club.
