=================================================

The first time we tried this one it started raining. Have you ever tried bushwhacking in the rain to find a trail that hadn’t been used since the 90s? We gave up, but returned later and found our trail, thus creating a brand new loop hike just for our VIPs!

My secret trail connects the Cold Creek Preserve and a segment of the Backbone Trail.

Post hike lunch at Maria’s Italian Kitchen in El Camino shopping center at 23331 Mulholland Dr. Its to the left of Wells Fargo. The corkage fee is only $10.00

We’ll be hiking through uncharted meadows….

…some optional rock climbing….

….meandering between trees and bushes….

Nothing like a cold shower under the weeping rock

Perhaps there will be time to visit the VIP Clubhouse

We will be hiking off-trail and may require some bushwhacking and poison oak avoidance.  Wear long pants, long sleeves and good hiking boots.  Hike is about 5.5 miles with 1,000 ft elevation gain. Expect the unexpected.
