The Good  
* Beautiful green rolling hills.
* This is a great place for dog walking. But be sure to bring a leash.

The Bad  
* Wide open sky. Not much cover.
* After a rain, the trail will be _very_ muddy. The soil here is particularly rich.

Where  Calabasas, CA

Many historic movies were filmed at Ahmanson Ranch, then known as Lasky Mesa. Among the movies were Gone With the Wind, The Thundering Herd, The Charge of the Light Brigade and They Died With Their Boots On.

This hike has next to no elevation change, but there are so many great paths that we could hike just as long as we wish.
