“A short run above the San Fernando Valley.”— John McKinney
From the trailhead, the run takes you down a dirt path that follows a creek running parallel to Reseda Blvd. The trail meanders south while steadily gaining elevation. Roughly one mile into the run the trail enters Topanga State Park before coming to its juncture with Mulholland Drive.
Follow Mulholland Drive to the right to to continue the run. After roughly 1/4 mile along the dirt path you come across trail junctions with the Bent Arrow Trail and the Rustic Canyon Trail. Stay on Mulholland Drive until you reach a junction with a sign pointing you in the direction of Mulholland Gateway Park, turn right here to go toward the park. After nearly 1/4 mile you'll reach the park at the end of the path. From here you can follow Reseda Blvd. back to the original trailhead for the Caballero Canyon Trail.
