“Summit Calabasas Peak in the Santa Monica Mountains.
— John McKinney
This trail starts out at a parking area along Stunt Rd. Head up the dirt fire road that veers off of Stunt Rd., known as the Calabasas Peak Motorway Trail.
Along the fire road there is an abundance of geological formations that have been eroded into unusual shapes worth looking out for, as well as a diverse variety of shrubs and trees. Roughly 3/4 of a mile from the trailhead at Stunt Rd. you'll come across Red Rock Saddle, which has power lines crossing the road. At this point there is a junction with Red Rock Road
. Continue to the left along the Calabasas Peak Motorway Trail.
Continue up the winding trail for nearly 1 mile until you eventually reach a more narrow path that branches off to the left of the main fire road. Follow this narrow path for a little over 1/10 of a mile and you'll reach the Calabasas Peak
Summit, sitting at 2,163 ft.
