Trail shared by John McKinney

Use this trail to link up with the Mulholland Trail and gain some significant elevation along the way.

Description

The Brush Canyon Trail begins at the end of Canyon Drive, and the fire road starts its climb to the northeast. At first, the climb is gradual, but after 4/10 of a mile the trail becomes significantly steeper. At this point you'll start to become surrounded by chaparral flora, characteristic of the region.

The trail will then start to bend toward the west and after 1.2 miles of running it will come to an end as it hits the Mulholland Trail. You can either join up with the Mulholland Trail to extend your run or turn around and return along the same route.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
