“A short loop offering coastal views and interpretive trails about the local ecology.”— John McKinney
Follow this fire road toward the coast until you reach the Reservoir Trail and Old Reservoir. From here, follow the path in the down-coast direction and over the top of the tall bluffs to the Ocean Overlook Trail. This portion of the run offers great views of the Malibu coastline below.
When you're ready to return inland from the overlook points, head onto the Lower Loop Trail leading to an oak grove. From here, you can continue onto the East Meadow Trail as it heads northward. Along the trail you'll learn how the vegetation of Southern California has adapted to the threat of fire over time. The trail will then come across the Botany Trail, which you can follow back to the Oak Grove Picnic Area and, ultimately, the original parking area.
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.
Stop by the nature center at the beginning of the run to learn what is currently blooming and to get a brochure that will interpret the East Meadow Trail.
