One day trailed running and hiked! Completed the Backbone Trail: Tapia to Kanan-Dume, in 4 1/2hrs, over 11.6 miles in/out, a total of 23.2 miles, at 2,936ft. Rated: Moderate/Hard. Nice overcast (February 2018). Good to build your endurance!

The trail is primary used for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running and it is accessible year-around. In addition, be mindful of mountain bikers and dogs need to be on a leash. It was an amazing workout! My legs were on fire: burning nonstop. Also, if you’re planning on parking on Malibu Creek Road, the cost for parking all day is $8.00.

On that note, if you're looking to get into shape, lose weight, or tone up. I recommend, incorporated some kind of physical activities. That was a lovely hiked and trailed running. "Mind over matter." ❤️
