This pleasant hike gives you a good aerobic workout, with a moderate but steady uphill trek for a little less than 2 miles to the summit of Calabasas Peak. The views along the way are wonderful. This pleasant hike gives you a good aerobic workout, with a moderate but steady uphill trek for a little less than 2 miles to the summit of Calabasas Peak. The views along the way are wonderful. As the hike starts, off to the left are grand vistas of the Santa Monica mountains across a lovely small valley. Over the crest, Red Rock Canyon comes into view on the right. As you ascend to the peak, along the right are spectacular tilted and pocketed sandstone formations set against the beautiful green mountains. Along the way, there are a number of interesting rock formations that you can scramble out on (carefully) for some great views. A very enjoyable hike.

Did it with my dog. Strenuous but great views. No shade so go on cooler day.

Beautiful vistas for much of the hike. I would rate this trail as on the strenuous end of moderate. There are some very steep sections and the last bit is very steep. Take your time, drink some water and just enjoy the scenery.
