Event Description

Thanksgiving weekend - now that you've done the family and friends thing with feasting and chilling, maybe it's time for a diversion before getting back into the work week saddle. This day's outing will touch the highest point in the Santa Monica Mountains, definitely a picturesque panorama from the top if the day happens to be clear. The route will be approximately 7 miles with 1500 feet of vertical gain.

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: 34.035223,-118.685199. 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.
