The trailhead is 1 mile east of the Circle X Ranch, which is located 5.5 miles from Pacific Coast Highway on Yerba Buena Road in Malibu.

Alternately, from Westlake Village, exit on Westlake Blvd from the 101 Freeway, and follow it south for several miles as it merges with Mulholland highway. Turn right onto Little Sycamore Canyon and it will become Yerba Buena Road as you cross the county line. Proceed on Yerba Buena Road for about 4 miles to trailhead, which is about a mile before you hit the Circle X Ranch Ranger Station. If you are travelling from the 101 and reach the Circle X Ranch Ranger Station, you have gone too far.

Meet at the parking lot.

The Good  Highlights include the spectacular Echo Cliffs where rock climbers ascend shear cliffs, a house sized boulder delicately balanced on a small rock beneath, a giant split rock where kids can dash between the sheer walls, stunning giant sandstone formations, and breathtaking views from the top of Sandstone Peak and Inspiration point.

- Sandstone Peak is the highest point in the Santa Monica Mountains.
- Views from Santa Barbara to Santa Catalina Island, inland to the San Gabriels on a clear day.

Where  Near Malibu Canyon, CA

Notes  We'll be following the trail to the north end of the parking lot, and left at the crossroads.
