Hike Red Rock Canyon to Calabasas Peak
Rate this Adventure Los Angeles › Red Rock Canyon Parking Lot
Added by Sassy Resuello
Short hike to the top which also offers a great leg workout. Great for those days when you just want to get some blood pumping, and you want to be rewarded with amazing views.
When you get to the parking lot be sure to pay the $5 parking fee. You will need to place this in the provided envelope and drop it in the iron ranger.
Start the hike by following the fire road behind the gate. About a couple of yards in, you will see a trail on your left which leads to a ghoulish looking cave. On a hot day, you will appreciate the cool temps inside the cave.
After exploring, continue on the trail until you reach a T-junction. Turn right and this is where the trail starts to get steeper. Simply make your way up the mountain, and you will come across another junction: Right looks like a continuation of the trail, Left will lead you on to a steep descent to reach the top. Veer left to reach Calabasas Peak.
Return the same way you came.
