Walking clockwise the trail is impassable about a mile in. With some common sense and gps you can work out a detour that will add maybe two tenths of a mile to the loop.
Also the first few miles parallel the highway with the expected noise level
And, if that’s not enough, watch out for sting nettles near the detour.

Less easy than expected. I don’t see some children doing the first part. Which is also very noisy with the freeway..
Won’t do it again even But the views are amazing.

Very beautiful hilly area. The freeway noise is always in the background, but so are birds, deer, and coyotes at sunset which gives it a bit more wild feeling. There are several intersecting trails that we came across which are not indicated on AllTrails. We parked at the bottom of Calabasas Rd which is the trailhead to Anza Boreggo trail in the riparian area at the west of the turnaround. We walked uphill to the New Millennium trailhead. We continued at 1,300ft through the maintenance lot for the gated community, then eventually met las Virgenes trail, right, then headed right onto Anza Boreggo, through the riparian area and back out at the trailhead to the car.

A bit muddy in spots today, otherwise great trail conditions. No crowds. We made 1 wrong turn and ended up hiking 14 miles. Challenging

This trail was quite beautiful. At the start of the trail, you have an option to go left or right. If you go right it is a moderate hike and you are mainly climbing up the entire way. If you go left you miss 80% of that and it makes the hike fairly easy despite the length. I recommend going to the right, it is much more fun. There is a sweet bridge you go over and a couple changes in scenery. A ridiculous amount of tumbleweeds cluttered this trail though, and I saw a few mtbs. Give yourself plenty of time to do this hike as well, I was out there till well after sunset and I found out that California has stinging nettles. ..bummer. oh! This trail also is covered in white sage so it smells amazing and is a good place to go to gather for smudge sticks!
