We will be going up the Caballero Trail from our starting point on Reseda Blvd in Tarzana.

This trail climbs approximatly 500 feet to Mulholland Road. We will take the fire road to the Farmer Ridge Trail to our first rest stop at the top of Gizmo Peak where we will enjoy 360 degree views.

After leaving Gizmo Peak we will continue our lollipop loop hike down Rustic Canyon to the first Bent Arrow Trail to Mulholland Road.  We will than come to the second Bent Arrow Trail that we will take to a different part of Mulholland Road. We will travel a mile to our final decent down the Caballero Canyon Trail back to our starting point.
