Calabasas Peak

Trail Map

Calabasas peak stands alone at 2,163 ft offering 360 degree panoramic views of the santa monica mountains, calabasas, the coastline and greater los angeles basin. The hike starts at a parking lot off stunt road just about a mile or two passed mullholland hwy. The trail begins on the other side of stunt road from the parking lot and goes up. Start

It is about 1,000 feet of elevation gain to the top so bring plenty of water and don’t go on a day where it is hotter than 75 degrees, there is no shade. Looking ahead you will see the top of the peak the whole time. Almost there

If you go during spring you can see lots of wild flowers such as the common goldfields pictured below. Trail Map

Once you get close to top look to your right and you will see the pyramid of caves. At the top of ridge take a small trail that goes off to the left. This will take you to top of calabasas peak which is only another 10 minutes. Once at the top enjoy the view. There is also a lockbox which has poems and a journal with messages left by others. Feel free to add your adventure and read about that of others. The Peak
