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.

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.

Nice short steep and sweet hike. All service road until the very end, but a nice little jog if you are into that sort of thing. Did it early and it was nice and cool.

My dog and I went on this hike just before sunrise and the fog was amazing. It filled the canyon, which made for some pretty awesome sights. The hike itself was not hard in the least bit, but good views for the entirety of it. Also, it wasn't loud at all, and I only saw one other person on the trail.. All I heard was the chirping of birds; granted, I was there pretty early. Anyway, I would recommend it, especially for a sunrise hike!

Enough has been said about the Grade, its not that bad, its all fire road and too many houses around. Geologically its a fascinating trail and that fact makes it worth it.
At the top for a snack all you hear is the 101 freeway constant roar, sirens, dogs barking and really kills any affect of escape.... not my cup of tea, but worth doing once. I put on a 25 pound pack and went down to Redrock canyon then back, then to the top, my Legs are sore so it was good.
