Join us on this 4.4-mile loop trail in Malibu Creek State Park. This is an easy hike with lots of variety, taking less than 2 hours to complete. A lovely walk down an oak-shaded lane includes a stunning rock pool with walls of volcanic rock and a picturesque lake. Make sure to take the path down to Century Lake, it's a truly spectacular place to stop for a picnic. Those with more energy can continue on several miles past Century Lake to the site of the old M.A.S.H television series, which Lipman is most excited about! This hike is a great opportunity to learn about flora and fauna native to the Los Angeles area, a much better representation than walking around Westwood.
